For Schools

Our schools course supports A Curriculum for Excellence. It is delivered using critical skills techniques with the added advantage of learning in the real world. Our aim is to offer children and young people the opportunity to access the curriculum in a new and more relevant way that is both exciting and enjoyable. At the Arran Outdoor Education Centre, we want you to know what to expect whether you are a Pupil, Teacher, Parent or Guardian, we want you to enjoy the adventure of learning outdoors!
