Schools and Education

Outdoor learning tailored to your needs

Our fun, hands-on learning sessions support the National Curriculum, deepen understanding of the natural world and encourage engagement with the diverse environment at Wild Place Project.

The sessions have a strong focus on learning actively in the great outdoors, and take place in close proximity to animal enclosures to provide a truly immersive experience that brings the topic to life. 

Spending time in nature is widely accepted to have significant impacts on wellbeing, and can help to develop social skills, teamwork, resilience and self-esteem. 
Our experienced Learning Officers can adapt the sessions to meet your learning objectives. Guidelines for your risk assessment are available.

All-weather learning

With plenty of undercover areas for learning, picnicking and play, there’s no reason to delay your school trip until the summer. 

Our learning sessions focus on many of the ecosystems represented here at Wild Place Project, such as Madagascar and British Ancient Woodland. They take place in our beautiful woodlands, wildflower meadows or in one of our undercover schoolhouses.      

Take on a team challenge!
