In this section you will find a range of case studies all of which demonstrate good practice within Learning Outside the Classroom. They cover the ten Learning Outside the Classroom sectors, fourteen school subject areas and the four key stages.

The case studies are added to regularly – if you have a case study demonstrating good practice which you would like to share with visitors to the LOtC website, please use the ‘submit a case study’ form.

To make it easier to search the case studies, please use the filter options on the right hand navigation bar.  You can filter by sector, subject, age range and audience using the plus or minus icons.
