Outdoor Education

scroll down

At Berkhamsted, we believe that getting outside and experiencing alternative methods of learning is a vital part of education. Through a variety of fun and challenging ventures, pupils will develop their self-confidence, leadership and teamwork.

Starting with our youngest pupils

Outdoor Education begins with our youngest pupils.  Our Pre-Prep offers the opportunity for our pupils to search for mini-beasts in the wood, or a first overnight trip learning Bushcraft skills for the Prep children.  Heatherton’s Forest School certification allows the girls to develop knowledge about the natural world around them.

For our older students

Our specialist Outdoor Education team provides opportunities for pupils to learn or participate in activities such as scuba-diving, rock climbing, skiing and kayaking.

We are also privileged to have our own High Ropes course at our Haresfoot campus; it is offered as an additional option for students in Years 9 to 13 during Games and as a venue for team-building activities for various student and staff groups.
