School Visits to Tissington


Tanglewood offers half day and full day programmes for schools at our wonderful woods in the Peak District Village of Tissington. Each session links with the national curriculum and offers a number of hands-on activities for Key Stage 1 and 2. All half day programmes can be “Tangled” with another half day programme e.g. a half day CSI Food Chains with a half day orienteering.


These hands-on programmes are a fantastic way of getting children out of the classroom helping to raise standards, motivation, personal development and behaviour whilst introducing them to the great outdoors!


Half day visit per class of 30 children: £175
Full day visit per class of 30 children: £200
An additional charge of £5 per child for groups of between 31 and 40.
For example: 35 children - £175 + £25 = £200 (groups of more than 40 will be classed as 2 groups)
For smaller groups (below 20) a reduced rate is available – please enquire.
The price includes the booking of Tissington Village Hall for the day. Sessions run from 10-12 noon for a half day and 10-2:30pm for a full day.

In your school grounds

If you can’t come to Tanglewood at Tissington, we would love to come to your school and offer a range or woodland based sessions within your school grounds. We are currently working hard to put together our outreach programme but please contact us to describe your requirements.


What teachers are saying about Tanglewood

“I just wanted to email to say thank you for a lovely visit last week. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and didn’t stop talking about it on Friday. They loved the activities you planned and the link to Robin Hood was great.”

Sarah Higton, Class Teacher, Year 1 St Oswald’s Infant School, Ashbourne June 2016


“We followed up the day with several writing and science lessons – we know exactly the habitat required for a dragon and its egg! We also have a display ‘ Tanglewood Adventure’. We still have the dragon’s egg in the class waiting to hatch – our class pet! The Children loved it!

Karen MacDonald, Class Teacher, Kniveton Primary School October 2016


“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a lovely day. with you today. We had lots of tired children in the way home which is always a good sign of a great day. Many Mums and Dads remarked on the day and said how much they had enjoyed it too. Many parents said they were going to come back to the village and the trail. It is really important to us that we offer the children something they would not usually experience and today was just perfect.”

Claire Inman, Headteacher, New Mills Nursery, 18th July 2017
