The Great Out-tours Limited are looking for people who are passionate about the great outdoors and inspiring the imaginative minds of children, using the school countryside stage.

Our very first ‘pioneering’ West Sussex franchise is run by Forest School Leader/Business Owner Samantha Cross who quotes “Via the Great Out-tours after school club ‘Four Seasons Activity Programme’ children get access to the outdoors through its seasonally themed activities. The club sessions we run offer opportunities for education, practical skills development, teamwork and a whole heap of fun! The schools love it, as it is a great complement to their offering, giving support to the curriculum and after-school care. I have found that rather than conflicting with my Forest School business, it has dovetailed beautifully. The two businesses complement each other. More to the point, the children love it.”
