School sessions

Sutton Ecology Centre is your local Environmental Education provider!
We aim to provide inspiring places to deliver the National Curriculum, encourage children and young people to develop an interest in the natural world, give children a chance to discover Sutton's nature in a safe environment and teach using a variety of different learning styles to include all students.

Education sessions usually last 2 hours, and are available both at Sutton Ecology Centre Nature Reserve and at a Green Space near you. We make learning fun and interactive through hands-on investigation, with games and activities in a safe stimulating outdoor environment. All our educational programmes are designed to link in closely with the National curriculum.
