Children from all years at Springfield have been lucky enough to experience bush craft sessions with the Really Wild team. The children love the excitement…The great thing about the sessions is the fact that staff and children work together…is not only educational but gives all children the confidence and self esteem to achieve.

“The Really Wild team certainly delivered! Our students grew as individuals and as a group.Ollie Nicholls Outdoor Learning – Ravens Wood School

“Having Really Wild work with us year after year is a highlight in our school’s calendar and gives both children and staff in our school a wonderful experience that is not forgotten. They bring our topics to life and cater for all types of learners. As a teacher, it’s great to see how the children interact and really shine – often those children that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to, which makes the whole experience even more special.”
