Our secluded estate has woodlands, natural ponds, a stumpery and a bird hide overlooking Hornsea Mere. It attracts a huge variety of birds, animals and insects that can be found, spotted, identified and classified. The Arboretum is home to over seventy interesting trees including three Champion trees, mature specimens and younger saplings. They provide an excellent resource to inspire children’s imagination and questioning skills.
The sessions led by our qualified teacher cover Science, Geography, Literacy and Maths. They can be differentiated and adapted to suit children of different needs within the primary age range. Our aim is to deliver courses which are memorable, inspirational and relevant to the School Curriculum. We hope you’ll join us for an adventure.

Open day Activities
On Open Days activities for children will be provided at the admission hut with instructions, these are self-led and will encourage children to observe and look for clues or objects around the walks and the grounds. Parent supervision is necessary and we suggest children follow the Countryside Code ‘Respect, Protect and Enjoy.’ Please ensure that flowers are not picked and litter is taken home.
On open days children under 10 are free.
Brownies, Guides, Cubs and Scouts groups are welcome to use the woodland area and activities can be planned to enable them to gain badges. This can be arranged with the Education and Environment Warden.
All group visits and Holiday Activity Sessions must be booked in advance. Prices include a staff pre-visit with the Wassand Hall Education Warden to discuss your specific requirements, answer any questions and introduce you to the Wassand environment.
