We’d love to welcome your school to Holt Country Park. Rangers will plan and lead a full or half day programme to fit your needs. We can accommodate groups of up to 90 and any age groups ranging from pre-school to GCSE. Our rangers can also suggest activities for pupil's unaccompanied studies.
The Ranger service includes teaching Environmental Education at Holt Country Park.
This aims to promote a healthy and caring interaction between the learning group and the natural environment.
£5.00 per child. Teachers and adults who accompany school trips gain free entry.
