Download: Outdoor Learning – Perth Academy

This resource is part of a study looking at what outdoor learning can mean in its widest form, taking the school as the hub from which learning radiates out into the school grounds, the immediate surroundings, the wider town and community, and even the wider world. If we start mapping these into learning environments, the classroom is no longer the only, or always the best place for learning.

The Outdoor Learning Resource at Perth Academy consists of a collection of two outdoor classrooms with tables and benches, a school garden, hedging, woodland planting, and a drama space. The area serves as a place to learn, a place to gather pupils who have been working outdoors elsewhere in the school grounds, and as a social space used during breaks and lunchtimes.
