This original study explores the geographies of outdoor education. In recent years, there has been an unprecedented drive to make use of the outdoors as a learning space in educational practice. This has been coupled with a growing body of research critically examining the geographies of education. Despite the perceived benefits of outdoor education, which have been the focus of much academic literature to-date, the particular spaces through which outdoor education operates have been significantly under-researched. This study therefore contributes to an increased understanding of these spaces, through an empirical focus on the Outward Bound Trust, the UK's leading provider of bursary-assisted outdoor learning.
