Key stage 3

Motivate your students with an inspiring visit to Wild Place that will challenge their preconceptions, develop teambuilding and communication skills, and engage them with environmental issues.
 
Our hands-on sessions take place in the great outdoors, often near animal exhibits.  We recommend warm clothing and sturdy footwear!
