Welcome to Sherwood Forest Education Centre. As part of Nottinghamshire County Council's Outdoor and Environmental Education Service, the centre is a well regarded educational facility set in the history-laden north Nottinghamshire countryside.
We work closely with schools and groups from Nottinghamshire and further a field to provide individually tailored days for young people and adults to experience quality outdoor learning experiences. Programmes aim to enrich the curriculum and help learners reach their potential through positive engagement with the education process, increasing confidence, group awareness, healthy activity and fun. The centre is also available for self led groups throughout the year.
Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve is an internationally recognised location that provides an ideal place for school visits. Pupils will be able to immerse themselves in the Legend of Robin Hood and discover the woodland habitat in fun and exciting ways.
