education in the cotswold water park

Come and learn in the great outdoors!

The Cotswold Water Park is a great place to introduce children to the natural world, with such a wide variety of species all around. The lakes, rivers and meadows are home to thousands of dragonflies, fish, water birds, plants and insects which makes it a very special place to visit during the summer term.

The CWP Trust offers a safe and stimulating programme of environmental education sessions, for KS1, KS2 and community groups such as Rainbows, Brownies and Beaver Cubs.

The varied and exciting sessions are designed to complement the National Curriculum, whilst providing an opportunity to learn hands - on about many of the usual favourites such as minibeasts and plants, along with some more unusual topics such as beavers and bats.

All staff and volunteers are fully trained and CRB checked.

COMING SOON!  Full details of our exciting new programme at a stunning location in the Cotswold Water Park.
