School visits to Grizedale

Uncover the secrets of Grizedale with your class

Grizedale, located in the heart of the Lake District, offers fantastic opportunities to inspire and excite learners of all ages and abilities.

A classroom with no walls

The living, breathing forest is a versatile learning space, with room to think and space to explore. 

Plan sensory exploration or wildlife and habitat spotting with younger children. Older children can see how ecosystems work, undertake field studies or explore the science behind the tree lifecycle.  

Learning in a forest is also a practical way to immerse your class in a range of subjects. Spark students' imagination by delivering a lesson on any topic, using the setting as inspiration.  

Discover sustainable forest management in action

We grow, shape and care for forests, managing landscapes for people, wildlife and timber production.
