The best classroom and richest cupboard, is roofed only by the sky
December 6th 2021
Not all classrooms have walls. Robin Hood’s Bay’s cobbled streets, rock pools and coastal environment provide a natural outdoor classroom and curriculum to explore, discover and unwind. Run by ex school teachers who will share their love of learning, rock pooling, fossil hunting, star gazing and cliff walking. Ideal for residential trips and also day visits for school educational trips.
