About Classroom Outdoors

Classroom Outdoors is the umbrella name for school residential experiences provided by SU Scotland at our three centres; Lendrick Muir, Alltnacriche and Gowanbank. We have been delivering school residential experiences for over 25 years. Each year, we partner with schools to provide an outdoor learning experience for hundreds of pupils.

Our cross-curricular range of activities responds to Curriculum for Excellence. The residential experience is a great opportunity to explore the whole person, helping pupils to develop personal and social skills and build self-esteem, while learning about their environment. We deliver relevant, interactive, dynamic and inspirational sessions that bring outdoor learning to life, all within the context of our Christian ethos.

Qualified outdoor activity instructors and experienced staff partner with you to design and deliver a high-quality educational programme.
