“Having Really Wild Education work with us year after year is a highlight in our school’s calendar and gives both children and staff in our school a wonderful experience that is not forgotten. They bring our topics to life and cater for all types of learners. As a teacher, it’s great to see how the children interact and really shine – often those children that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to, which makes the whole experience even more special.”

Joe Harvey, Year Head at West Park School

“The outdoor education team at Ravens Wood School wanted its students to experience something special that they would never usually get to do at their age. The Really Wild team certainly delivered! Our students grew as individuals and as a group. They learnt how to use primitive weapons, to make fires and natural shelters, how to responsibly work with knives, how to navigate and how to administer first aid in the field as well, all in the winter months too. Lessons were well planned and extremely engaging. The team’s professionalism and positive attitude throughout ensured a great experience for all. Highly recommended!”

Ollie Nicholls, Outdoor Ed co-ordinator Ravens Wood School

“I would like to thank Really Wild for the wonderful time they gave the pupils of Dorothy Stringer School. The youngsters loved their introduction to bush craft and were totally enthused and engaged throughout. We will definitely be doing it again!”

Bruce Aitken, Outdoor Education, Dorothy Stringer School
