Surrounded by stunning views and natural beauty, the Jurassic Coast is a beautiful part of the UK. But it’s not only spectacular scenery that the Jurassic Coast has to offer. It also has a variety of educational activities for visitors to choose from. From fossil hunting to water sports, there’s plenty of activities to fit the requirements of every educational group. 

The Jurassic Coast is England’s only natural World Heritage Site, and consequently, it is one of Britain’s most popular destinations. It is also home to some outstanding sites of nature. The vast collection of fossils, for example, is simply mesmerising – perfect for any geology or geography students. 

The Jurassic Coast is also home to a variety of environmentally focused school trips, where students will have the chance to see the impacts of climate change first-hand. Educational groups will come face-to-face with coastal erosion and marine pollution, motivating students to be more environmentally friendly in the future. 

But geography and environmental studies are not the only areas of the curriculum school trips to the Jurassic Coast cover. Taking your school group to the Jurassic Coast will get students out of the classroom and into nature. Pupils will be encouraged to learn in an outdoor environment, where they will have the opportunity to take part in adventurous activities and coastal programmes. This will engage pupils, encouraging them to develop critical skills. From teambuilding to leadership, communication to independence, the Jurassic Coast provides classes with the perfect environment to learn as a team.
