Our Mission

“At Bonterre we recognise that for some children, conventional classroom based learning is not a setting in which they can thrive, particularly for those with educational, behavioural and emotional challenges.

We understand that we learn better through doing and that learning takes place in diverse ways. We understand that basic needs must be met before effective learning can take place and that trust and respect are paramount for a healthy learning environment.

Our fundamental aim and objective is to unlock potential, helping children to learn, share, discover and feel that they do have a future and a right to a purposeful place in society.”
Mike Stringer
Bonterre Founder and Director

Our Guiding Principles

At Bonterre, we believe that all young people are important and that each child has unique talents, abilities and gifts.
Our fundamental aim and objective is to unlock potential, helping children to realise what they ‘can’ do and have to offer.
Outdoor, creative hands-on learning can play a very important role in developing children of any age, creating balance and positivity.
We believe that everybody has a future and a right to a purposeful place in society.
We are passionate about sustainability and the wellbeing benefits that a better connection to nature and the physical world around us can bring.
