for primary schools
Make learning unforgettable
How do you bring a subject alive for primary school children?
One solution is to show it working in real life.
Better still, get your KS2 pupils out there showing you!
Whether it's Science, Computing, Geography or Maths, help your pupils discover a world outside the classroom.
Let them benefit from the link between hands-on experiences and a deeper understanding of the subject. Watch the moment it falls into place for them.
Study is different when you take it outdoors with us. We mix real-life practical learning with adventure activities to make it meaningful and accessible. You’ll see for yourself what a difference it makes.
Choose from our range of tried and tested study modules according to your group’s learning needs. Whether you’re looking for specific subject focus or a cross-curricular course - we’ll give you all the support you need to arrange the best combination.

Our courses follow themes designed for KS2 pupils; our instructors are trained and experienced in enabling your pupils to make links between the subject they study in school and the practical implications in the ‘real’ world – for example their experiences on a PGL adventure base.
Above all, we work with you from the outset to establish what your aims and objectives are; we then timetable the appropriate study modules and organise complementary adventure activities, often with direct links between the activities and the study.
- Data collected during outdoor activity sessions is incorporated into selected study modules, giving your pupils opportunities to develop a range of skills including investigation, observation, prediction, recording, measuring and forming conclusions.
- All our Computing modules are fully integrated into the whole PGL experience. Depending on which module they study, pupils will creatively interpret their stay at PGL or analyse data collected on site.
- Geography modules give KS2 pupils a practical introduction to the themes and areas of study in inspiring PGL locations, which offer different habitats and great learning potential.
Work can be recorded in our ICT suites / on tablets and form the basis of further work in school on your pupils’ return.
