Countryside education

Ham Hill Country Park is a fantastic site for both formal and informal visits for all groups - from schools and colleges to out of school clubs, community groups young and old, and all sorts of clubs and societies.

There is a comprehensive Education Pack for Ham Hill Country Park which is ideal for teachers and community group leaders looking for interesting and enjoyable activities to engage for their pupils/young people.

The pack contains full instructions on how to run each activity, curriculum links, learning outcomes, worksheets, extra resources and more. Activities include orienteering, history tours, hamstone studies, plants and habitats, arts and craft and ideas for exploratory games.  

From 2007-2009 we were able to provide ranger-led sessions due to the appointment of a full time Education Officer. However we do not currently have funding for someone to provide education sessions for 2010 - we are hoping that this will be put in place for 2011 onwards. We can, however, provide:

  • A comprehensive Education Pack
  • Hire of the Ham Hill Education Centre
  • Equipment hire such as quadrats, magni-jars and sweep nets
  • Books, ID guides and other resources
  • Interactive whiteboard
  • Work experience opportunities

For higher level students we can offer a range of resources such as management plans, visitor surveys and artefacts to enable you to complete independent research projects.

For more information or to arrange an appointment at the Ham Hill Centre , please contact us online.
