Adventures in nature

Visit our private nature reserve at Nower Wood with your school and let our expert guide take your on an educational adventure.

We have a range of curriculum-linked sessions to choose from suitable for all ages and abilities. A regular day visit for EYFS/KS1/KS2 costs £10 per child with a minimum charge of £200 per class. For KS3+ visits please contact us for more information.

What you get

After choosing your topics from the sessions below, one of our team will contact you to gather more details about the booking. We will liaise directly with you to ensure that all your group's needs are met and create a bespoke Plan of the Day to share with your staff. You will also receive comprehensive risk assessments and all the equipment you need will be provided on the day to make your trip as easy and stress-free as possible. As always, you are welcome to book a time to come for a recce before your visit to familiarise yourself with the site before your visit.

On the day you will be welcomed by our staff, introduced to the site and taken on an activity-packed adventure through the woods. You will have exclusive access to one classroom per 30 children for the whole day. Each room includes an interactive smart screen and its own double doors which open directly to the reserve.

How it works

You can build your visit from the session options below, most visits last from 10:00-14:30 with a break for your packed lunch. 

Most schools choose two sessions, each lasting 90 minutes to make their day. Sessions indicated below can be shortened to allow for three 50 minute sessions in the day if you prefer.

And of course, you can always just come up to use the facilities and the woods for your own planned learning! You could host a forest-themed storytelling day in our inspiring surroundings or fit one of our sessions around your regular planned classes based in our classroom. Just let us know your ideas and we can discuss how to make it work for you.
