School Visits

Arrangements for school or college visits are rather different from those for small family/bubble groups. We prefer to work with a half class = 1 mini bus, or (with sufficient staff in attendance) it is also feasible to involve a whole class (see Transport advice, below).

Each visit is very much tailored to the needs of the group, so that we can give targeted help to young people requiring a ‘re-set’ after home learning and lock-downs. The length of day will be a maximum of 5 hours, including a long walk, for those of sufficient stamina/fitness. You may choose to specialise in any curriculum area, either historic, creative, STEM or Green Future. A PDF, to enable follow-up work, is included in the day price of £160.

Transport-wise, ideally we prefer to accommodate just 1 mini-bus. For a whole class, on a full-size bus, the activities can only begin and end at Ponts Mill public car park, so you will walk to Meadow Barns for a long lunch stop and on through the woods for the afternoon. With advance notice we can also welcome wheel chair or limited mobility students, who normally would join in for the lunchtime only.

For primary schools it may be possible to receive funding assistance towards transport costs from the Cornwall Heritage Trust. https://www.cornwallheritagetrust.org/apply/
