Minstead Study Centre

Training Events

We run frequent courses for adults, using our wonderful environment as a classroom to introduce participants to lots of different ways of using school grounds as an educational tool.

Getting Outside

For Early & Primary Years

Aimed at early and primary year’s practitioners, these courses will send you home with new found confidence to go outside with children and learn in an all-encompassing environment.

Sustainable Site Managers courses

Your Site Manager is a key person in getting things done in and around the school. This workshop allows them to meet colleagues and explore the issues of sustainable schools more fully.

Whole staff INSET

Bring the whole staff to the centre, enjoy a day away from school and go home having experienced one of the most moving educational experiences you can expect.


Come launch, reinvigorate or hear more about Eco-schools, visit with an eco-team or even your whole staff.
