“Feeling comfortable in the wild gave me the confidence to be who I am, not who others want me to be. There is a natural simplicity to nature; it is far more tactile and tangible than the classroom. It’s a leveller; it strengthened my character and set me back on track.”

Quote from Ben Fogle in The Guardian Newspaper

Children - education at Platty+

Did you know we hold a Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge and an Adventure Mark.

Throughout our 30 years, education has been at the heart of the business. Working hard to incorporate elements of education into all our activities without losing the spirit of adventure. We believe that children learn best whilst having fun.

We work with school parties from reception to Year 13, including special needs, youth and university groups, many of whom return year on year.

All the adventurous activities that we offer can be incorporated into your itinerary, or we can help you to design and deliver a bespoke programme to include a variety of educational elements and have fun on the way.

Programmes can include a range of elements from the curriculum, creating memorable outside the classroom learning experiences, to take back to school. Inspiring creative writing, providing focus on practical applications of maths and science, bringing history & geography to life, promoting team work & skills acquisition, all taking place in the amazing environment which is Derwentwater. We have ideas, resources and local knowledge to help you create a fantastic programme.

We can offer governing body awards courses from British Canoeing and the Royal Yachting Association. We can assist with the Duke of Edinburgh and John Muir awards and GCSE sport
