Planning your visit

Educational visits to Seven Sisters Country Park are planned in consultation with the Sussex Wildlife Trust People and Wildlife Staff. Visits take place during term time throughout the year, Mondays to Fridays between 10.00am and 3.00pm. We can arrange other times and days to suit your requirements. We are happy to welcome groups of pupils with special needs by prior arrangement.

How the Day is Organised

Coaches will be met in the forest car park which is located on the north side of the A259 access via Littlington Road which states ‘unsuitable for coaches’ – please ignore this as the car park is immediately right.  We will designate a large bay area for your coach – there is room to turn around.  This is a unique agreement that SWT have with East Sussex County Council to reduce road crossings.  Schools will be greeted by our staff and classes will be led into our education barn for an introductory talk. Toilet facilities are available.

For woodland programmes the barn is used at lunchtime and bags may be safely left there for the day. For programmes out on the park children must take their bags with them. There is a camping barn nearer the coast which can potentially be used for lunch. Toilet facilities are available at the camping barn.

At the end of the day the children may like to visit the Visitor Centre. Groups are accompanied across the road to their awaiting coach.

Staff in charge of visiting educational parties are advised that the Trust hold them fully responsible for the conduct of all members of their party during their visit. The school must provide accompanying adults to ensure at least one adult to ten children. Although our staff are first aid trained, schools are responsible for administering first aid for/to their children.
