“A lovely way to encourage schools to take a trip to your National Trust property or land site is to set up an outdoor classroom. Teaching and learning alfresco style at any time of year is a treat for students and teachers, and you can make it even more enjoyable by creating designated learning zones.

Adding strong, sturdy furniture with large table tops to accommodate clipboards and learning materials will make it easy for schools to plan
a trip to a National Trust location and take their lessons around your outdoors.


This additional service offering could be marketed as a free bookable space, so that each visiting school party has the confidence that they will be able to hold their lesson in an environment where their students are comfortable and can focus on their day of learnings.

For a complimentary appraisal of your outdoor space and to ensure you are maximising it to its full potential, give me a call and I will happily help you by telephone or a site visit.”
