Our unique and locally situated Environmental Studies Centre enables pupils to experience many aspects of the environment first hand.
Pupils explore living things in the pond and under stones and logs, always mindful not to disturb the natural habitat. The Outdoor Classroom provides opportunities for a diverse range of research. Weather studies are a regular occurrence and our state of the art ICT suite enables pupils to monitor and record their findings.
A caring and concerned attitude towards the environment is nurtured whilst an understanding of how conflicts can occur between the needs of man and the needs of the environment is taught. Pupils are taught of the complex inter-relationships between physical conditions, natural processes, human activities and the Earth’s resources. Each pupil in the school from 4 years old spends regular valuable time at the Environmental Studies Centre.
