Please use our booking enquiry form to tell us about your school or group visit.
The maximum number of children per visit is 30. If your group is larger than 30 you must contact the reserve. The children should be divided into the appropriate groups prior to the visit. This will have been discussed before your arrival.
For the visit to be a pleasurable and valuable learning experience for the children a good ratio of adults to pupils is required.
NUT guidance is as follows:
Adult input is helpful and more adult help is better than less.
There is also a selection of activity sheets that you can use to plan your activities. You can download these here on our website. When booking your visit please indicate which activities you would like to do.
Coaches are unable to access the reserve and so must park on the Parade Ground.
