Uncover the secrets of Sence Valley with your class

Sence Valley's rich woodland and unique history 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.
