Educational visits are organised to support learning objectives in specific curriculum areas. However, in addition to this, structured teaching takes place in a variety of environments during regular timetabled activities.
Functional and practical application of life skills are developed through local community access including:
Shops, Cafes and Restaurants
Mainstream schools and colleges
The Outdoor learning approach used at Wargrave is designed to use the natural environment to impact positively on the health and well-being of our young people. The experience offers a larger, learning environment outside the confines of the classroom with natural light and reduced environmental stress factors e.g. bright lights.
The opportunities presented through Outdoor Learning also support the progression of social interaction, communication, flexibility, raising self-esteem, increasing the ability to self-regulate and experiencing success. The development of these skills will equip our young people to prepare for life beyond education, enable them to become more self-aware, lead a healthier lifestyle, have positive mental health and become more confident and more independent in all aspects of their everyday lives.
