Outside Learning

Stroud has recently been awarded the ‘Council for Learning Outside the Classroom’ (CLOtC) Silver Award, a national accreditation that has been endorsed by the Department for Education.

Stroud pupils benefit from lots of opportunities to learn outside on a daily basis: alongside a rigorous programme of numeracy and literacy; the school embraces Learning Outside the Classroom, and a team of teachers, led by Angus Reid, Head of Learning Outside the Classroom, workied hard towards the national accreditation.

The CLOtC award now sits alongside the school’s Eco Schools Green Flag that it has held for the past ten years. Now it has been awarded the national accreditation, Stroud School is the only school in Hampshire to be recognised for the quality of its outdoor provision with a silver award, and we are looking to gain our Gold Award within the next two years.

The school was praised for outstanding achievement in sustainable development education and management, and continually improving the environmental performance of the school and the wider community.

Ongoing projects include gardening clubs, planting an orchard in the school grounds and further energy saving and charity initiatives.
