The Outdoor Education experience is an integral part of the learning process at Long Close School. With a long tradition of facilitating students’ connection to Active Learning outdoors, our goal is to promote our pupils comfort in, and understanding of, the natural environment. The Early Years children enjoy regular Forest School sessions where they gain a real appreciation of nature. Prep School children take part in residential trips where they stay in camps, learn to cook outdoors and go on expeditions. In the Senior School our students follow the acclaimed DofE programme which teaches them about resilience and volunteering.
