Looking for ways to spend your pupil premium funding? Have you considered outdoor learning? 

An increasing number of schools we work in partnership with are using their Pupil Premium funding to give their pupils access to our residential experiences.

Evidence in recent Ofsted reports, from a number of schools we work with, suggests they view learning outside the classroom as a successful tool for narrowing the achievement gap, supporting the purpose of the pupil premium fund.

This example shows how high attainment and levels of progress can be secured through a well-integrated curriculum with a broad programme of learning outside of the classroom (LOtC). This includes many residential visits, day trips and activities in the local environment. Neston High School
There has been a strong emphasis on helping financially disadvantaged students so that they can participate in activities such as The Outward Bound Trust's residential course, or theatre visits. There are no significant gaps in the achievement of different groups of students. Flixton Girls' High School
