Hartsholme Country Park and Swanholme Lakes Local Nature Reserve comprises of 200 acres of woodland, meadow, heathland and wetland where children can learn about the natural environment. We welcome visits from school, youth, community and adult groups and offer both Ranger and self-led activities. We have an Education Ranger who can lead all or part of your visit, using our education areas. Sessions and activities are available for all ages from pre-school to adult. Alternatively, we can facilitate a self-led visit led by your own staff.

Add a 'teacher experience'

Please use this space to advise teachers on how to get the most out of their trip. From our research, teachers would particularly like to read about:

  • How well did the trip support your objectives?
  • Were there any particular parts of the venue that were more or less useful for this?
  • Is there anything you wish you’d known before your trip?
  • What were the adverse weather facilities like? (if applicable)
  • Do you have any advice/comments about the facilities e.g. lunch arrangements?
  • What was the quality of the staff led guided session like? (if applicable)
  • What suggestions do you have for pre or post-visit activities

I certify that I have recently taken a group of children/young people to this venue on an educational trip. My 'teacher experience' is a reflection of my genuine opinion and experience of this venue and does not name staff. I do not have any other associations with this venue and they have not offered me any incentives to write it.
