RHET is the lead provider of outdoor education for pupils of all ages, through fully risk-assessed Farm Visits, in Scotland.
The farm and working countryside can offer experiential learning opportunities, linked to Curriculum for Excellence outcomes, whilst enjoying fresh air and outdoor learning.
Visits are free to pupils in primary and secondary
Pupils must be aged 5 years and over.
The farmers and growers who host school groups give
us their time for free.
Please visit the In Your Area page to get in touch with the coordinator in your area who will handle your
Farm visits can take place all year round. We do ask you consider submitting your request as far in advance as possible. There are busy times in the farming calendar which may impact on the ability to meet your request.
Before pupils visit a farm, a pre-visit between teacher, farmer and
coordinator will be held on farm to discuss the route, health & safety
procedures (a site specific risk assessment is provided), what pupils have been
covering in class or what would be useful to clarify during the visit.
