Bring your class to Creekside Discovery Centre for an adventure they will never forget!

From early years to Secondary, our team of experienced and friendly environmental teachers encourage curiosity, enthusiasm and excitement in the local area and wider world.

We bring science, geography and history to life through hands-on experiences in a real life environment. Our programmes help students explore, make discoveries, propose hypotheses, carry out investigations and draw conclusions all whilst engaged in an exciting outdoor activity.

We also provide tailored learning environments for Higher education (including University) and Adult education programmes please contact us: enquiry form here.
