School Trips @ Southport Eco Centre

Home / North / Merseyside

The Southport Eco Centre hosts an award winning educational facility which delivers a wide range of topics covering Geography, History, Science, Citizenship - the list goes on. We offer educational days which are held entirely in our safe, contained classroom and others which involve an off-site element, exploring local environments to further bring topics to life. Most of our topics are adaptable to a range of age groups and group sizes and we even offer bespoke services if you would like the day tailor made to suit the specific needs of your group (terms and conditions apply to this). All of our visits are risk assessed.

Why are Southport Eco Centre great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

Our trips are memorable and hands on, never anything that you could do back in the classroom. We design our own in house resources - both IT based and more tangible resources, indoor and out. We lead sessions off site to allow pupils to immerse themselves in the topic where applicable - this is usually accompanied by a session here at the Eco Centre to broaden and deepen understanding. We have consistently brilliant teacher feedback and many teachers return to us again and again. Teachers love the safe, contained environment of the Eco Centre classroom and garden.

What activities are available during group visits?

Stone Age/Prehistory, Rainforests, Natural Disasters, Coastal Change, Victorian Southport, Waste, River Estuaries, Habitats, Water Conservation and more.

What size groups do you cater for?
