What we offer on a school trip
School trips on Birdswood offer outdoor experiential learning in a safe but stimulating environment. Our bespoke cruises offer educational, entertaining and engaging child-centred activities with lots to see and do.
The boat runs on a scenic rural stretch of the Cromford Canal, built during the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century, now under restoration and forming part of the UNESCO-cited Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. This area has a rich history and many interesting sites related to Transport and Industry.
A Birdswood cruise is a unique, fun opportunity to explore and investigate National Curriculum links at EYFS, KS1 and KS2 levels in history, science, geography, numeracy, literacy and arts/crafts.
We strive to incorporate your specific curriculum requirements and are happy to discuss current themes and desired outcomes with teachers.
We offer one-to-one pre-trip advice/consultation by email, by phone or in person at our Cromford base (prior appointment necessary).
