How Outdoor Classrooms Are Revolutionising Learning

In the ever-evolving education landscape, one notable trend is the integration of outdoor classrooms into the learning experience. These innovative spaces are transforming the way students engage with their education, offering a refreshing alternative to traditional indoor settings. At Edspace, we are at the forefront of this revolution, providing excellent outdoor classrooms which create a deeper connection between students and the natural world.


Unlocking Creativity and Hands-On Learning

Outdoor classrooms create a vibrant and engaging environment that gets students to think in innovative ways. Being surrounded by the sights, sounds and textures of the natural world wakes up their senses, fuels their curiosity and inspires creative thinking. These spaces allow for active, hands- on learning where students can explore science concepts, observe nature up close and use their imaginations through games and activities. Whether studying plants and ecosystems, investigating physics concepts such as motion and force or staging performances, having nature as the backdrop helps to fully immerse students in a variety of activities. Outdoor learning spaces help to blur the boundaries between the classroom and the real world, deepening their understanding.

Boosting Health and Focus

Research shows that spending time in nature is good for mental and physical health. Outdoor classrooms provide a relaxing setting that reduces stress and improves concentration and focus. By bringing the outdoors into learning, students feel calmer and more refreshed, which helps them take in and remember information. The bright natural light, fresh air and opportunity to move around more freely allow the body and mind to revitalise. Students who struggle to stay engaged inside often thrive in these outdoor lessons, and the active, multi-sensory experience prevents zoning out and enhances understanding and cognition.

Edspace's Built-to-Last Quality and Green Approach

At Edspace, we take pride in our durable, sustainable outdoor classrooms. We are committed to quality construction and environmentally friendly practices, and each outdoor classroom is carefully built with responsibly sourced, pressure-treated timber that meets the highest standards for playgrounds. This ensures an eco-friendly build that will last for years. The key features of our outdoor classrooms are as follows:

  • Durable Materials: Our standard classrooms come with wooden (Timber) decked floors, ramps for access, bench seating around the edges (perimeter), secure fencing (enclosure) and solid wooden (Timber) roofs - everything for a safe, comfortable space.
  • Flexible Sizes: We know space needs vary, so we offer rectangular outdoor classrooms from 3x2m up to 8x4m, as well as hexagonal outdoor classrooms versions from 4-6m wide to fit your available area.
  • Custom Designs: Sometimes, pre-made (fabricated) options aren't quite right. That's why we also provide full customisation to bring your unique vision to life.
  • Personalised Touches: Take your classroom to the next level with extra bench seating outside, secure half or full-height fencing ( enclosure panels) and built-in activity tables. Make it your own space.
