Woodland Trust Sites
OASES are actively working with the Woodland Trust to encourage schools to use their sites and resources to enhance learning.
Woodland Trust sites exist across the north east and range from newly planted woodlands to established semi-ancient woodlands.
Within the north east the Woodland Trust own many different sites, so there is bound to be a woodland worth visiting near to your school. Some sites, like Low Burnhall in central Durham, contain everything from ancient trees to whips, mown grass to wildflower meadows, so they are an ideal place to study habitats, lifecycles and classification.
If your school is wanting to use a local Woodland Trust site for regular trips we will work with your staff to ensure that: all permissions are in place; all of the necessary risk assessments are completed; staff are confident and inspired to use the site. Please see the attached flyer Woodland Trust Bespoke School Sessions for more details and then get in touch to discuss your school's requirements. Bespoke packages start at £300.
Please be aware that most Woodland Trust sites do not contain toilets or an outdoor classroom, so half day visits are recommended.
