Beach School

Imagine an expanse of sand as far as the eye can see, with views of Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight, and the South Downs. This is our classroom. Where better to take our curious children than to a place where the sand is a blank canvas?

With views of Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and the South Downs, as classrooms go it is pretty awesome! The perfect place for curious children to learn about marine ecosystems, tides, coastal weather and how life operates on and around the beach itself, our commitment to providing unrivalled outdoor learning opportunities is realised in glorious sea-breezy abundance.

Learning how to judge and take intelligent risks, it also gives them free rein for highly imaginative and creative play and encourages social communication, co-operation and problem solving. Incorporating cross-curricular projects, Beach School is as rich in multi-sensory experiences as it is good old fashioned fun.

A wonderful opportunity to learn, play and to develop personal skills – in particular collaboration, perseverance and resilience – our ultimate goal is to use our outdoor pursuits programme to help shape children into responsible citizens who have a lifelong appreciation of the natural world.

“Beach School is a fantastic way for children to grow in confidence and self-esteem away from the classroom.” Head, Louise Salmond Smith
