Our outdoor education programme for schools takes place at Rippledown. The effects of learning outside the classroom can be life changing.

- Connecting with the natural world
- Improving team and class dynamics.
Rippledown is the only UK Outdoor Learning Centre not in receipt of government funding. Donations are crucial in keeping the centre staffed, maintained and stocked with essential equipment. To find out more:
