The Antony House Outdoor Education Programme is now in its 11th year and during this time has attracted over 13,000 pupils and teachers from over 120 different schools, colleges and other related organisations. The overall aim is to inspire learning in the natural environment by offering access to curricular and non-curricular outdoor environmental learning and activities across all school and associated subjects via a wide range of natural habitats, including gardens, woodlands, ponds and estuaries. We have a designated indoor education room with a whole range of resources from a soft play area to digital microscopes and other equipment on the more high tech end and complementing this we also have an arts, craft and field studies room. To enquire for further details regarding what we can offer, our facilities, safety checks etc you can contact me by email at [email protected] or by phone on 07896304719. Many teachers like to make a preliminary visit to Antony to see first hand what we can offer and I would be delighted to show you around the grounds, our facilities and resources. The founders of the National Trust believed that ' children need nature as much as nature needs children' and current research by the government and the National Trust shows how important an experience in the natural world can be to the health and cognitive behavior of children and for that matter people of all ages.
