- The Outdoor Year
Being responsible for making stuff happen is a challenge.
Local Authority Schools | Forest Schools | Playgroups | Nurseries | Independent Schools
We understand that you want to make the right decision quickly so you can get on with teaching, schooling and nurturing. We haven't dealt with a school or group that isn't under pressure in some way and we appreciate that with the shift in emphasis to outdoor learning many schools are finding themselves in new territory.

Whether you're a front line practitioner or responsible for procurement we've worked with your counterpart somewhere.
it's hard to find suitable clothing that keeps your children dry and comfortable (the absolute minimum requirement you need for healthy learning and exploration).
it's hard to find professionally designed clothing that children can easily get on and off themselves that avoids diluting your time as a school, group or leader.
it's hard to find clothing designed by people who understand it's not just adults who need to use the loo and design with appropriate fastenings!
We can help you
it's challenging when you ask for the children to arrive in suitable clothing and then the plan and class suffers because once again one or two children arrive in un-protective or inappropriate clothing
it's hard to find a supplier with an established purchase order and delivery process that accepts several payment methods and large and complex orders including local authority purchase orders
it's hard to find a supplier that differentiates between family clothing suitable for the weekend and clothing fit for school and group purposes with regular wear and tear
you need to be certain that you spend your limited resources wisely
then you're in the right place.
We've worked with 100+ schools now.
We've spent more time liaising with manufacturers and suppliers in Northern Europe, Scandinavia (the home of practical outdoor clothing) and around the globe than you can imagine. We've checked, tested and analysed the best outdoor clothing for the available budget.
We're able to supply outdoor clothing for:
Local Authority Schools
Football Clubs, Charities, YMCA, Scouts, Guides , Children's schemes
and offer substantial discounts and free delivery on many of our products when you order in bulk.
We supply protective, enabling clothing to people who don't want to think too much about clothing, people who have more important work to do.

As a school administrator it's my job to make sure that the companies we deal with are sound administratively and have good back office support.
It was very easy to get Adventure Togs set up on our supplier list. They provided the suit samples we needed to make a decision and then the ordering and invoicing was seamless. When you couple this with the speedy delivery and the discount given for our bulk order we're very impressed.
We're planning to purchase more suits for the school for different year groups over the next couple of years.

The Outdoor Year Calendar
Got something brill to share? Need a bit of inspiration?
Most of the content comes from people like you at the front line of outdoor learning.
To add to the calendar:
20 - 30 words is usually enough to kindle interest. Tell us what the day's about and how it could be celebrated or woven into your work.
If a hyperlink helps then add one. Its simple, click here.
(Some months are a bit thin on the ground at the mo, but we’ll update those as we go along - together).
Don't forget to share it as a resource for teachers. (social sharing links here?)
ps We'd love to hear how you've structured your own outdoor learning around the calendar. Please share your stories and photos with us!
