Schools and Education

Please note: We are currently not accepting education bookings. By their very nature, these sessions require children to be in close proximity to one another. They will only resume when we are confident that they can happen safely and to the high standards that we set ourselves.

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 activities 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 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 with Leap of Faith! 

The Leap of Faith experience offers a range of adrenaline-fuelled challenges to test the nerves of your school group. With activities including our namesake 25ft Leap of Faith, Bristol’s only giant swing, and a high ropes course, we certainly have enough to keep your students entertained and exhilarated!

All activities encourage teamwork, promote self-confidence and help develop communication skills and resilience. We can cater to Key Stages 1 – 4 and tailor the day to meet your requirements and budget. You can find everything you need to know about your next school trip here
