School Visits

Over 6,000 primary school children a year visit us to learn about the Shropshire Hills, nature, history and food with all sessions integrating fun and learning in to the national curriculum. Please click here to download our Education Brochure.

Our visitor centre offers large rooms, allocated to your class for the day, and a large outdoor space with picnic benches and play equipment, perfect for letting off a little steam at lunchtime.

Our organised activity rates are:

25 children or less – £105 plus VAT
26 – 138 children (or one class, whichever number is larger) – £125 plus VAT
36 – 50 children – £210 plus VAT
51-70 children – £276 plus VAT

Some factors may cause the pricing structure to change a little for your group such as health and safety considerations meaning that group numbers should be more limited. Contact our Education Officer, Stephanie Bellows, to discuss your bespoke session:

Where groups exceed 35 children, they will be split in to two for the day with each group being led by a member of our team.

Our charges include the leadership of one of our education team and pre and post visit teaching suggestions.

  • Visit our Exhibition.

Admission to our exhibition is included in any led activity booking. Otherwise, charges for educational groups are:

£2.75 per child aged five or over.
Children under five go free.
One adult to every ten children is free of charge. £4.25 per additional adult.

  • We can come to you.

We understand that your costs need to be kept as low as possible and that costs of school trips off site can add up with extra staff, coach hire etc.

Therefore, we are able to tailor our sessions to be held at your school as an outreach session. Travel is included in the above fees for the area below. Travel to your school will be charged if you are outside of this area, please call us to discuss.

  • Secondary Schools, Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Adult Groups with Learning Difficulties

We can also work with your lower KS3 group, adapting our primary school activities to suit you. We have a variety of activities suitable for SEN groups and adult groups with learning difficulties.

  • Extended School Activities

We offer one hour after-school sessions that we can bring to your school once a week for half a term. Our sessions are suitable for KS1, KS2 and mixed age groups. We can discuss the size of your group and tailor our offer to suit, depending on the support that you can provide.

  • Professional Development

Let us help you develop a bespoke day to fulfil your team’s objectives with an optional buffet lunch made by our award winning café team. From confidence with pond dipping to an introduction to forest school, you are guaranteed to have fun and leave us with a wealth of knowledge to share with your class.

Our sessions are linked to the national curriculum and prices start from £105 plus VAT for up to £15 adults. Contact us to discuss your next PD Day.
