About the Ezone


Discovery, Exploration, Personal Development and Learning!

Based at Roberts Primary School, the Ezone was created at the end of the 1990's. Both indoor and outdoor areas are user friendly for all abilities with disabled access throughout.

Discover this oasis on your doorstep. Outside, the four acre nature trail is safe and secure, and consists of various habitats including a large pond, small orchard, woodland and grassland. Closer to the indoor classroom there is a sensory garden to explore.

All activities are 'hands-on'  to ensure children are engaged and interested throughout your visit. They are tailored to meet the needs of each group and are designed to raise awareness and understanding of the environment.

We offer support and advice relating to the Curriculum, and guidance and advice on working towards the ECO-SCHOOL Green Flag award.

Schools can pay an annual subscription which allows them to use the Ezone throughout the year including visits to their school. The Ezone also offers a day rate. For details contact Guy via the contact tab above.
