Schools

School groups can learn all about nature with us!

We offer special trips for school groups, each including a workshop session with hands-on activities. Our interactive interpretation lets students explore a variety of topics through play-led learning, whilst our fun and engaging workshop sessions allow children to meet some of our residents face to face, and incorporate multisensory and kinaesthetic learning experiences.

We provide template risk assessments for the site, and ensure that we are providing a safe learning environment for students of all ages.

We recommend planning a 2-3 hour visit, depending on the size of the group and the time of year.
