Schools and Education
Sustainability is now a topic that schools are keen to address, both inside the classroom and through the inspiration of organised visits outside the classroom.
The Sustainability Centre offers your school a choice of a day trip or a residential visits. We aim to inspire your pupils by taking a diverse approach to this complex topic by providing ideas for Eco work back at school and by showing eco friendly ideas in action.
We explore current environmental issues and possible solutions to give your pupils ways to take action at home or in the school grounds and there are plenty of hands on activities to keep pupils engaged throughout their visit.
"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" .
Bringing your pupils to stay in our Lodge on a residential trip can be a particularly valuable experience with time to fully explore our 55 acre woodland with options for team building or for a one night camp out with bush craft activities. A longer stay can also develop self esteem and gain confidence in the outdoor environment.
Our experienced Education Team are all Forest School trained, with a wide range of expertise.
We hold the Quality Badge for Learning Outside the Classroom.
"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".
Zero Waste Lunch
Can you invent ways to bring you lunch that leaves no waste? NO food waste and NO packaging waste!
We are experimenting with a new Zero waste program at our centre.
To help us we ask that you bring a zero waste lunch with you on your visit.
If you do have some left over packaging you will need to take it back to school or home to decide how to recycle it.
Any raw food peelings/ apple cores we will collect and put in our compost bins on site.
We would love to share your Zero Waste Lunch ideas with others schools!
