Better exam results from a connection with nature

It is commonly observed that in schools where learning outside the classroom takes place, attendance records improve and behavioural problems decline.

So it would seem to be a debatable point as to whether the current practice of keeping students within a set of rooms in groups of 30 or so pupils for five hours or so a day, five days a week, is a good idea. We do it, because that is how schooling has evolved, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Certainly being outside the classroom is liable to encourage the pupils and students to become healthier, and the resources beyond the classroom are far greater than those within.

But to provide your students with this alternative, you will likely need a suitable mode of transport, which is why the team here at Benchmark have for some time been working hard to create the most convenient minibus packages for schools.
