Outdoor Ted® 
Taking Education Outdoors 

Outdoor Ted is an exciting educational resource at the

Skylark Nature Reserve - Yorkshire. 


Schools can visit the nature reserve for a fun filled day designed and delivered by Sky Sports Teacher of the Year, Stacey Howard. 



About Me 

My name is Stacey Howard and I have been involved in education since 1997. I started my journey as an Advanced Teaching Assistant, working my way through a number of roles including being a School Games Organiser for over 45 schools. 


Five years ago I decided to peruse my passion for being in the outdoors which is where Outdoor Ted was born. 

Not only can being in nature help with mental health & wellbeing but it is a great tool for education. 

Our most popular days are our team building and problem solving days but we cover many cross curricular subjects such as The Stone Age and The Great Fire of London. 

My greatest achievement came in 2014 when David Beckham, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Darren Campbell declared live on Sky Sports that I was Teacher of the Year. A day I will never forget. 

Since then I like to think of new projects and my latest one, Passport 2 Success was voted to be in the Top 3 projects as part of Sports Englands Impact awards for 2022.
