    Free-range Childhood: enabling children and young people and adults to experience learning and playing outside
    - restoring the connections with self, others and the earth.
    - providing children and young people (especially those in need, special needs, excluded and deprived) with outdoor learning experiences aimed at nurturing their potential and helping to make sense of the world around them

    All residential and non residential, activities, (programmes and sessions) take place outdoors in our grounds and include hands-on experiences usually based on Earth Education, which teaches ho the earth works and develops a lasting love and relationship for the natural world.
