Exmoor National Park - a great place for teaching and learning

 Exmoor has long been recognised as a superb place for outdoor learning. Our unique environment offers an exceptional diversity of locations, subject, habitats and experiences within a relatively small and accessible area, making it an inspiring and practical destination for groups of any age. In recent years we have developed a range of free and curriculum based  online resources to support outdoor learning on Exmoor . These include our Moorland Classroom resources which provide structured learning resources for key moorland sites throughout Exmoor and our new Lyn Catchment Resource supporting the teaching of GCSE and A level Geography.
