School visits at Wakehurst support and enhance the curriculum offered in schools and colleges. We aim to give students opportunities that are difficult or impossible to create in the school or college environment. We design our sessions to match the learning outcomes in the National Curriculum and GCSE specifications.
Our visits are planned to suit your needs, and the outcomes, based on the options you choose, will be agreed at a planning meeting.
Some possible opportunities for students include:
