About Our Work

Perry Outdoor Education Trust equips schools in low socio-economic communities to develop young people using outdoor education experiences.

Professional Development

Perry Outdoor Education Trust delivers training to provide teachers with the skills to deliver quality outdoor education programmes.

For many of my students, the opportunities that are provided are a first and encourage them to continue to strive to expand their horizons.
