At Ryecroft we arrange school trips that provide unique opportunities for kinaesthetic learning i.e. ‘learning by doing’ and encourage students to engage with people, places and buildings in new ways. This is particularly beneficial for many SEN students who find visual and sensory experiences helpful to their learning and understanding.
Learning outside the classroom is rewarding and enriching for both teachers and pupils alike. At Ryecroft we are trips to places such as churches, museums, galleries and law courts and these visits undoubtedly add extra depth to pupils’ learning and experience
Dallowgill Outdoor Activity Centre
Dallowgill is located in the Yorkshire Dales and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It provides all our pupils with a residential experience at a bespoke environmental and activity centre. The local farmers have agreed access to the farms and Yorkshire Water have agreed to allow us use of land adjacent to the centre for parking and camping. This provides children with an opportunity to experience rural life in a profound way.
