School visits to Haughmond Hill

Discover Haughmond Hill with your class

Close to Shrewsbury and with a variety of trails, Haughmond Hill is great outdoor environment for groups to get involved in small-scale, self-guided learning activities.

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.

At Haughmond Hill, you'll see what sustainable forest management is, and why it's so important, through hands-on activities.
