Earth Trust have been running educational visits at Earth Trust for over 35 years giving young people the opportunity to learn outside the classroom. We welcome over 3000 school children per year and this year we have refreshed our sessions and are ready for the new school year.  Our dedicated team of Earth School Tutors will work with your students to offer them a unique day of  discovery and learning and a day they wont forget.

Our location, environment and dedicated trained staff are our best teaching tools and every workshop we run is based outdoors. We are lucky to boast the site of an Iron Age hill fort, SSSI woodland, grassland and river Thames all within walking distance of our main site.

Our new and improved sessions are customisable to your curriculum needs and we cater for all Key Stages.
