All charges exclude VAT at 20%

Our pricing structure remains the same, whether we visit your school or you come and visit us, other than additional travel and time charges for schools over 15 miles from our bases at SE9 and DA16. As many of the schools we visit are in Inner London, there may be a an additional time and travel charge at rush hour peak times. Travel may also require the congestion charge to be included in our fees.

**95p per mile charge only applies to additional mileage over initial 15 mile radius. Therefore if your venue was 54 miles from SE9 or DA16, you would be charged an additional 39 miles at 95p per mile for the journey to your location only. (54 miles - 15 miles = 39 miles x 95p)
*** If your venue is over a 1 hour journey from our bases, you would be charged an additional £20 travel time for the journey to your location. Therefore if travel time was calculated at 1 hour 20 minutes, then you would be charged an additional £20. If the journey is over 1 hour 30 minutes, then you would be charged an additional £40.
Please note all travel distances and timings are quoted using the standard online AA route planner for both accuracy and fairness in calculating the quickest and fastest routes. (

Multiple Booking Discounts

Make sure you maximise our services across the whole school by considering booking us for more than one visit. For multiple day bookings to cover more year groups, the school rate reduces to £300 per full day. 


We like to ensure that our fees and pricing are visible and open for all decision makers within schools to see. As a not for profit Community Interest Company our aims and values are to provide an affordable service to all, therefore if our pricing structure is not viable for your school, please speak to us and we will try to find a solution that fits your budget whilst maintaining funding streams for us to provide the service. 

After School Activities

We are an accredited Childrens University Learning Destination and can provide extra-curricular after school clubs or holiday clubs and courses within your school which incorporate nature based outdoor play & learning. For more information on our clubs, please read the Activity Club section of our website or contact us on with your contact information. If your school is not already part of this scheme, you can read more and arrange a visit about becoming members of the scheme at 


We can support activity funding bids by providing further information on our service or submit joint funding bids for regular extra-curricular activity provision. Please speak to us for further information. 

Community Events within School

For school summer fairs, fetes and fun days we provide open sessions as opposed to educational workshops so our subsidised community rates would apply. These start at £195 for 1 to 2 hours attendance. All our prices for longer attendance can be found HERE>
