What we offer on a school trip
Located in the South Downs National Park the Sustainability Centre is set in 55 acres of woodlands and grassland above the village of East Meon. We are an Eco learning Centre and an Educational Charity and have been welcoming schools to the site for over 17 years. Some areas of the site are dedicated to conservation whilst others are part of the working centre which includes a restaurant, classrooms, cafe plus camping and lodge accommodation. The Centre offers a variety of hands on and engaging environmental activities that promote sustainable living and green issues in an inspiring yet tranquil setting. We work closely with schools to ensure we provide a trip of value for a wide variety of groups size, ages and length of stay.
Our speciality is our range of activities to enhance and inform your eco topic so we can help bring the subject alive. If you are looking for a visit to enliven a classroom project we can help to arrange a thought provoking trip that will provide lasting memories for the children. Learners can explore a round wood build, experience first hand a biodiverse mosaic of habitats, build an earth oven or earthbag arch or become attuned to the woodland and learn bush craft skills. We can also arrange a visit to one of our local farms on the Food and Farming option.. There are lots of different options within the teachers pack on our website including our Saxons in the Meon Valley history topic. On an overnight trip or a week long residential pupils will have a chance to gain a broader understanding of sustainable living by staying and enjoying activities on our site or take advantage of our South Downs Experience package focus on this area of the South Downs National Park.
