Why take part?

Fishing for Schools is  a free resource to schools.  Delivered over four sessions, we assist schools in delivering their outdoor learning strategy by providing a positive outdoor experience to young people aged 10-16 years. Our programme helps develop key life skills including team building, leadership, enquiry and thinking skills. We help deepen and enrich learning.  Sessions are linked to key curriculum subjects with objectives agreed in conjunction with school, staff and students.

Head of Secondary, Rowhill School

Our Experience >

The pupils at Rowhill have behaviour and learning difficulties, so it is very important to find positive activities that the pupils will engage in and enjoy. Success in an activity generates confidence and has a positive impact on engagement in other school activities”

SENCO, Kent school

Our Experience >

"The young people thoroughly enjoyed the Fishing for Schools sessions. They improved their practical skills. They learnt how to complete written tasks for portfolio work. They improved their social skills. They demonstrated their ability to work as part of a group / team with both staff and peers.”
