Foremarke offers a range of outdoor education experiences and residential trips each year. These are specifically designed to challenge pupils, to build on their strengths, and develop their full potential.

Placing pupils in a different context to one they normally find themselves in is a powerful learning tool. The learning that comes from outdoor education is not just acquisition of new knowledge, skills and information but a deeper level of personal understanding that becomes embodied within individuals.

Foremarke Outdoor Education provides a range of experiences that enable pupils to develop the qualities and attributes that will assist them in a changing world. The outdoors is a unique extension of the classroom experience and forms an integral part in supporting an ethos of holistic education.

In the academic year 2016/17 there will be a residential trip for each year group from Year 2 upwards. Details are below:
