School visits and activities

The Outdoor Classroom is part of the Barking Park Centre

Rangers deliver a wide range of topics throughout the year for school visits or if required, a programme can be tailor made around the schools needs.

The new facilities are an ideal setting for the Outdoor Classroom programme for schools, located inbetween:

  • the restored lake
  • newly planted wildflower meadows
  • refurbished ornamental tree areas

Pupils will enjoy experiencing nature through practical activities in the open air.

Our programme of outdoor learning brings subjects alive.

All of our sessions are based on National Curriculum or early years foundation stage (EYFS) targets and will be tailored to relevant age groups.

We’re open all year round, so why not take a look at the programmes on offer and bring your class this term.
