Springhead: an incredible environment to bring learning to life
We offer pupil workshops and curriculum days set within our extensive grounds and surroundings and supported by our dedicated classroom spaces and full on-site facilities.
Our team of experienced facilitators* cover a wide range of topics and curriculum areas and will fully resource and lead the learning for your pupils alongside your regular teaching staff. Every booking includes a pre-visit dialogue/visit to establish the needs of your learners and ensure an integrated and enjoyable experience for them and you.
We limit the number of workshops we offer each year preferring quality of engagement over quantity, and in order to care for the special nature of our unique site.
Our approach to learning
Our themed and curriculum-focussed learning sessions combine experiential learning with research-led and evidence-based pedagogies through our Learning with Springhead approach. It is an approach that...
... provides opportunities that are participatory and immersive. Our learning encounters feed on the natural curiosity of young people and support them to engage in critical and relational thinking.
... is rooted in building connections to the knowledge, skills and values of your curriculum. We see these as the tools and opportunities that help us respond to the wonder that emerges from our experiential learning.
... offers structured pathways to move purposefully into more challenging areas of learning and thinking. We use relational pedagogies that centre on young people and their voices, inspiring them to exceed their own expectations.
... is driven by a belief in the power of learning to nurture and sustain a better world that is relevant and meaningful to young people today.
