The John Muir Award

Sea the ChangeJohn Muir Award offers an ideal structure for contributing to the requirements of the Curriculum.

The John Muir Award can be used in a specific subject area such as Geography, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, English, Maths and IT, or across interdisciplinary / cross curricular activity. It can be embedded within strategies and interventions to raise attainment and meet wider areas of learning such as outdoor learning, personal and health education, sustainable development and citizenship.

The John Muir Award can give focus and structure to a residential course, field trip, or excursions to local areas. Alternative Curriculum groups find that the John Muir Award gives a framework for activity. 


As well as linking with formal education strands, the Award can be used more informally. It can be integrated into after-school clubs, extra-curricular activity such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Eco Schools, Forest Schools or school grounds projects.

Our John Muir Programme is appropriate for later stages of Primary and Secondary school pupils.  The John Muir Award is a nationally recognised Award, and all children involved receive a Record Book of their work, plus a Certificate of Graduation.
