The Springhead Trust

Springhead is a rural arts and environmental education centre, set in 15 acres of gardens and grounds in unspoiled Dorset countryside. We run day and residential visits for groups of children and young people and can design a programme to suit all ages and abilities, helping you deliver the curriculum at all key stages. Popular activities include: Learning about wildlife through pursuits such as river-dipping and bat detecting; helping to harvest produce from our kitchen gardens; going for walks in the beautiful countryside on our doorstep; drinking fresh water from our natural springs; devising and putting on shows at our open-air theatre and having campfires.
