What we offer
We have a nature reserve designed to engage your pupils and give them hands-on experiences.
With teaching ponds, minibeast meadows and a hide on stilts, it is a wonderful setting for memorable learning experiences.
Our carefully-designed programmes will help your pupils develop science and geography skills as well as have fun exploring nature. The range of habitats all in easy reach means that we can provide investigative field work and experience-led programmes to suit your group's needs.
To find out more, take a look at the list of the programmes and contact us to make a booking.
Each programme is designed to last two hours. Sessions run from 10am to 12pm and then 12.30 to 2.30pm. Two programmes can be combined to make a whole-day visit.
