Learning outside the classroom(c) Emma Bradshaw

Wildlife Trusts’ teams support and enhance learning in thousands of schools each year. We have accessible and inspiring locations, experienced dedicated staff and great community links.

Our excellent track record is one of providing inspirational, effective learning experiences for schools’ staff and pupils at every level and across a huge range of subjects. Wildlife Trusts have been welcoming school parties onto our nature reserves for more than 50 years!

The nature and extent of Trusts’ work supporting formal sector learning is decided locally. Examples of the type of work carried out by Wildlife Trusts includes improving school grounds for wildlife, guided visits to nature reserves, providing resources for educators, Forest Schools, school membership schemes, visits to schools and more.
