Specialising in Outdoor Learning, Education, Forest School and Training

Hello. We're The Outdoors Group

A friendly for-purpose all-inclusive organisation based in Devon.

The Outdoors Group specialises in outdoor learning; engaging children and students in forest school activities, providing alternative education, adult courses and team building activities. We believe outdoor learning creates meaningful educational and reflective experiences for both education and employment. We have a strong community focus and work closely to help provide the very best experiences we can. 

Across our group there is a range of programmes that are suitable for everyone and all ages. Our group consists of Exeter Forest School, Exmouth Forest School, Okehampton Forest School, Tiverton Forest School and Exeter Forest School Kindergarten, as well as training and courses for schools and adults. 

If you require more in depth training and delivery then we have accredited programmes that will provide the skills and qualifications you need to achieve your goals. Alongside these courses we offer consultancy on outdoor learning and can help set up the outdoor learning environments that will best suit your organisation.

We believe that outdoor learning and activities should be available to everyone and we will always provide a fair quote that is affordable. We ensure relevant and customised experiences that suit our clients. If you are interested in discussing options please ring or email to have a discussion about your requirements, we are happy to help in any way we can.

Our overall vision is to provide...


Our organisation was created to ensure everyone has the opportunity to learn with nature and experience the outdoors in as many ways as possible. We’re passionate about reconnecting you with nature.



We believe everyone should be able to experience what we offer at The Outdoors Group. Whatever your background or circumstances, you’ll be made to feel welcome and we’ll accommodate you as best as we can.



We believe that all schools should have access to outdoor learning and green spaces. Our team support this development within educational organisations across the South West and beyond.
