Can I firstly say a HUGE thank you. It was such a memorable experience that you provided for our youngsters. I know that the staff and parents who attended were equally thrilled to be a part of this! You command such control with ease and are clearly dedicated to the cause. The experience for our pupils was life changing for many… I personally was exhausted at the end of the two days. Thank you for looking after us all so very well. Your team were amazing too. The staff tea and coffee facilities were such a treat too! Thank you. There is so much to say… Mostly, thank you and we cannot wait to work with you in the future!!! Look forward to hearing from you soon to help our school get to Outstanding. Very best wishes, Laura Mrs Laura Besenzi NPQH BEd Hons Headteacher Carlyle Infant and Nursery School




Learning Outside the Classroom develops an understanding of the social, economic and environmental impact of our natural surroundings in children. Our expert teaching combined with a natural environment are all that’s needed to bring nature to life and for children to learn valuable life skills and increase self esteem.

With shelter building, fire lighting, bushcraft skills and more, Rural Pride Woodland sessions are packed with activities to bring children of all ages and abilities together, appreciating the sustainable role of the natural environment in our lives in the most hands-on way possible. We are accessible all year round to schools, community groups and individual parties.

Rural Pride brings life into the curriculum by providing children with motivating tasks outdoors. In fact, the learning benefits are balanced by the great sense of achievement and confidence children will take away from simply having fun!
