Many thanks for providing our children with a wonderful, enjoyable and educational day. Please run another Farm Discovery Day soon!” Rachel Atkins, Teacher, Side by Side Nursery and Special Needs School, East London

Our Youth and Schools Service run innovative programmes which draw on the internationally important nature reserves, wildlife and Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) of the Regional Park. Marshes, grassland, woodland, meadows, open water and rivers provide an array of exciting learning opportunities.
The Youth and Schools Service is dedicated to helping teachers, lecturers and youth group leaders enjoy Lee Valley Regional Park’s huge potential as an educational resource. Youth and Schools programmes last approximately two hours and full days can be made up by choosing two programmes. Activities will be tailored to suit the needs of your particular group.
We offer programmes for:
• Primary schools – designed to help meet the requirements of the National Curriculum for key stages 1 and 2 and to link to some QCA schemes of work. Many of the programmes are accompanied by pupils’ project books and some have activity packs for teachers.
• Secondary schools, colleges and universities – activities help meet National Curriculum, GCSE, BTECH and A level criteria.
• Youth groups – opportunities include countryside and conservation projects, orienteering, habitat studies and birdwatching. Many programmes cater for outdoor badge work and award schemes.
• Special schools and groups with special needs – we’ll adapt programmes to suit the needs of individuals or groups with particular disabilities or educational needs. We can also help arrange self-led visits.
