Grow to School partners with primary schools to take the curriculum outdoors helping children develop the skills for lifelong learning.

We are an established Community Interest Company motivated by a love of the outdoors and the natural environment. We recognise the benefits that learning outside the classroom can provide and our aim is to create meaningful experiences for children, teachers and the wider school community.

92% of teachers reported that being outdoors led to a positive impact on engaging pupils with learning (Natural Connections, 2016)
