Fishing for Schools in the Classroom
No one child learns in the same way. Our aim is to use angling as a springboard for pupils to understand the basics of education in an exciting and individual way, whilst offering a healthy outdoor hobby that can last a lifetime.
By using fishing as a medium, it allows young people to understand the basics of geography, mathematics – weights, measures, geometry – and literacy. We open up a world of aquatic conservation and preservation and the complex world beneath our rivers, lakes and streams.
Our Fishing Sessions
Our practical fishing sessions provide an opportunity to put into practice topics and subjects learnt in the classroom whilst exploring the exciting possibilities offered by angling. We offer a unique insight into the aquatic environment and creatures that inhabit the areas we fish.
This is a great intervention that brings about lots of small changes without intention: connecting with the outdoors, mindfulness, eye-hand coordination, skills development”

Follow Up – Certificates & School Assemblies
We believe it is vital to maintain a relationship with schools and provide a sense of achievement for the young people that have experienced Fishing for Schools.
Every child is important and is worthy of recognition of their achievement. Sharing assemblies and awarding certificates is a vital component of this partnership
Inter School Competitions
Young people are competitive. In order to meet that desire to succeed, be it football, cricket or fishing, we actively encourage participation in inter-school competitions, whilst always putting fish and fish conservation central to these events.
