Let us inspire your children in their learning – come to us or we can visit you in school
As well as our many workshops on offer we can provide walks, talks, demonstrations… or you may prefer to take the self-guided option. No problem! It’s also possible to book someone to visit your school if that would better suit your needs. Session content and materials can be prepared to suit any age or stage of learning.
If you can’t make our annual Teacher Preview event (2021 date tbc) but would like to make a preparatory visit, for example to complete your risk assessment, then please get in touch. We will be happy to arrange a visit for yourself and one guest free of charge.

Whilst we don’t currently have a ‘Coach Fund’ this is something we hope to resurrect at some point in the near future. In the meantime it’s worth bearing in mind that some organisations offer grants to support schools’ access to learning beyond the classroom. For example schools within the South Downs National Park can currently apply for a travel grant from the SDNP Authority.
