Bringing the beach to you

Let's face it we live in Wales and it's not always possible to get to the beach with our unpredictable weather! So, let us come to you. 

Beach Academy has portable boxes of beach discovery ideal to be explored and discovered by pupils in classrooms inside or out. They cover a wide range of topics to study beaches from ecology to plastic pollution, biodiversity to visual arts. Available year round and great for wetter months!

Training Workshops for School Staff

As experts of beach-based delivery, Beach Academy offers group and individual CPD training workshops for Coastal School Leaders, and any other school staff, to increase knowledge, develop confidence and skills to deliver lessons outdoors using a beach, either as a classroom or, as an educational resource.  

To learn how to use a beach, you need to be at the beach. Workshops can be tailored to your school requirements and are available weekdays and weekends to suit. For beaches and prices please get in touch.
