Wild Beach

Reconnecting people and their marine environment is at the heart of our Wild Beach ethos. With over 90 miles of coast stretching from Rye Harbour to West Wittering it's a wild space for learning with plenty of access.

We recognise the vital importance of promoting an understanding of the natural world and see the Wild Beach programme as an ideal medium for delivery.

Our trainers are experienced providers of environmental education, and have been delivering Forest School programmes to Sussex children from schools, nurseries and youth and community groups since 2005.

“May I just say a huge thank you for organising such an inspirational two days. I have been buzzing about it since the course and can’t wait to get this rolled out at our school. I have rarely been on such an engaging course and your enthusiasm is really infectious!”
