Schools and Education
Are you talking about Ecology, Sustainability, Climate Change, the Environment or Plastic Pollution in your school? We provide inspirational study visits that help schools address these topics whilst experiencing high quality learning outside the classroom.
We are committed to sharing our ideas for positive solutions to planetary problems. We provide hands -on activities and offer ideas for Eco work in school too. Come for a day or stay with us for a week and experience our schools programme in action. Our team are experienced, enthusiastic and friendly.
We hold the Lotc Quality Badge for our schools service.
Schools particularly value our efforts to make the visit special for each class. We want the pupils to feel that they are important to us and that we have time to concentrate on their group during their visit. For this reason we take only one class at a time on residential visits and a maximum of 2 classes at a time on site for day visits.
"Our year 3 pupils grew in self esteem; they felt a real sense of achievement at the end of the visit. It was a fantastic experience and all very positive. They felt cared for and safe the centre staff were outstanding !"
"We value the benefits of outdoor learning, time spent in nature and regular access to our local landscape" .
Our 55 acre woodland site is important to us so we limit our activities to those which our natural environment can sustain but which still offer exciting options for learning out of doors. On residential trips schools can enjoy a night walk, story telling and outdoor games at the end of the day giving even more time to develop self esteem, sense of community and confidence whilst being away from home with their year group. Examples of Green Living and sustainable solutions are built into the fabric of the trip.
Our ethos of earth care, people care and fair shares (from permaculture), are reflected in our committment to providing a really worthwhile and enjoyable experience for our under 18 visitors. As a result of the care taken with each schools visit we have a many repeat visits for both residential and day trips.
"The whole site of 50+ acres is a dream of a natural environment that enables groups to take time to look at and to consider the effect of their actions on the environment".
