Introduction to Beach Schools


Learn to safely explore your local beaches in our Introduction to Beach Schools.

We will discuss how to prepare for your visit and investigate the beach environment safely. Look at the tides and other risks that are unique to beach environments. Sample a range of simple, curriculum based beach activities which your class will love. Have a taster session exploring the rock pools, try your hand at den building on the beach and make a sand anchor to stop your den from blowing away.

Roker Beach, Seaham Harbour Beach and Tynemouth Longsands Beach are wonderful settings for your professional development day or series of twilights, but OASES can also deliver at your local beach.

If you would like to book this as a professional development day or series of twilights at your school, please contact us on
