The site is offering nature-based sessions for Primary and Early Years, Secondary KS3 and KS4. It also delivers nature-based sessions to A-Level students.

The team at the reserve said learning outside the classroom is known to build children’s confidence, inspire curiosity in nature, bring classroom learning to life, and benefit their mental and physical wellbeing.

Lisa Yarrow, learning officer at RSPB Bempton, said: “We’re so excited to welcome back school trips to our Yorkshire nature reserves this coming spring and summer. We can’t wait to help pupils discover the incredible hands-on learning that nature has to offer.

“Studies have found pupils retain information better when learning outside, bringing to life classroom learning and benefitting their mental and physical wellbeing.”
