Learning Outside the Classroom
At The Heights, Burnley we are committed to ensuring that all our pupils have the opportunity to access Learning Outside the Classroom activities. Our Learning Outside the Classroom programme raises our pupils’ achievement through an organised, powerful approach to learning in which direct experience is of prime importance.
It is not only about what our pupils learn, but about how and where they learn. It is about improving pupils’ understanding, skills, values, personal and social development which acts as the way to develop their motivation to learn. This is achieved through giving our young people real life experiences and practical, hands-on activities which enable them to acquire those key skills.
