Our Outdoor Learning Programme

At ICS London, our comprehensive outdoor learning programme is designed to provide enriching experiences for all students. Some highlights include:

  • Nature Walks and Field Trips: Students embark on educational trips to local parks, nature reserves, museums, and historical sites, allowing them to connect with their surroundings, explore biodiversity, and deepen their understanding of various subjects.

  • Environmental Science and Sustainability: Through hands-on experiments, gardening projects, and environmental initiatives, students learn about ecosystems, climate change, renewable energy, and sustainable practices, empowering them to become environmentally conscious global citizens.

  • Outdoor Sports and Physical Education: Our outdoor spaces offer ample opportunities for students to participate in a range of sports and physical activities. Students develop physical skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, and a lifelong love for staying active.

  • Adventure Education: Adventure-based learning activities, such as rock climbing, orienteering, and team-building challenges, promote personal growth, leadership skills, risk management, and resilience.

  • Trained Staff: Our experienced educators and outdoor specialists are trained in risk management, first aid, and safety protocols to provide a secure environment during outdoor activities.
