Bring your class to Hams Hall Environmental Centre, a hidden oasis of nature in an industrial world. Supplement your class learning with a hands on experience of nature.

Bring learning to life in our walled garden, woodlands and the River Tame!

All of our sessions support the National Curriculum from Foundation stage to A level. They support core subjects, with focuses on science, geography and citizenship. All of our activities are practical based and designed to involve learners in understanding the environment, conservation and developing investigative skills.

We have a fully equipped classroom and toilet facilities for the class, and all our activities are fully risk assessed and delivered by experienced and DBS checked staff.
