Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our education activities are on hold but we’re working on resuming our offer as soon as it is safe to do so.


Our safe, task-based activities are a chance to learn in our nature reserve, a green space near you, online or in your school or organisation. We offer a range of sessions for different ages, including forest school style activities, school visits and school assemblies. Learn new nature-based skills like willow weaving, have fun building a den or going on a scavenger hunt and more – to see examples, check out our Nature challenges for families. You can also learn about the climate crisis and we will help you to make practical changes that help the environment too, like reusing and recycling things.

St Nicks’ team of experienced Session Leaders deliver a wide variety of curriculum based activities promoting One Planet Living principles. These provide a vision of a world in which people enjoy happy, healthy lives within their fair share of the Earth’s resources, leaving space for wildlife and wilderness.

The principles and activities include:

All activities are designed to engage children, give them opportunities to develop their skills and be creative. They are based on the curriculum and fit into subjects such as science, geography or history. Sessions take place partly indoors in the eco-designed Environment Centre and outdoors on St Nicks Nature Reserve, but we can run them in your school too.

To book a session or for more information and current charges, please contact us.
