Outdoor Learning at The Kingswood Trust

We guarantee your experience will be a breath of fresh air, creating lasting memories and ensuring enrichment and achievement for everyone. Our outdoor education programmes promote health and well-being as well as nurture a sense of curiosity and fascination in the natural world.

Our charity, The Kingswood Trust, is a place where history comes alive with old buildings, air-raid shelters, historical features and artefacts. Outdoor learning takes place in our woodland and natural habitats, pond areas, bird hide, climbing trees, adventure ropes, forest school base camps and gardening areas. Opportunities to meet our sheep, ducks and chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises are a favourite with all our visitors. Our team building programme offers essential skills activities for personal growth.

Satisfaction

Volunteer hours last year

We had a very enjoyable day, well organised and professionally run with great staff. There was laughter and nonstop chatter, from start to finish.

- Elizabeth Birch, Cheltenham Ladies College Guild.

Thank you for letting us do all the activities and have fun. I liked doing the peg trail and tree climbing. I want to go again because it was so good.

- Sophie (Aged 6).

The Orb was ideal for all our needs with space for the 15 of us to eat together, perfect for group activities and families. I think we would struggle to beat it on quality and value for money.

- Max Woollard from Cheshire.

Volunteering at The Kingswood Trust makes me feel valued and confident. It was great fun, giving the pets their breakfast and discovering freshly laid eggs in the chicken coop. Thank you for such an amazing opportunity.

- Juliet (Aged 12).

My favourite activities were the rope course, the midnight walk and the air raid shelters. Thank you for letting us stay for a night and meet the animals. You looked after us so well.

- Johnnie (Aged 7).

The Kingswood Trust is a great place to visit and volunteer. Working at the Trust has helped me become more confident and now I am now in full time work

- Stuart Bickerton from Telford.

Thank you for looking after my children at The Kingswood Trust Holiday Club. They have both thoroughly enjoyed their adventures, nature based and fun outdoor activities and arrive home happy and tired, ready for a good night’s sleep.

- Simon Briscoe from Wolverhampton.

The Kingswood Trust charity is a place where there are no limits to learning and no boundaries to the imagination.

- Rachel Wells - Head Teacher and Charity Manager, The Kingswood Trust.

I loved the zipline and feeding the rabbits. My most favourite time was when we ate our roast dinner and then went to the play area. I have been begging Miss Mason to come back soon and I hope we will.

- Rukudzo (Aged 7).

A lovely man. What a beautiful legacy🌺

Such sad news. Sending our best wishes to the whole family; such a huge loss of a truly lovely man 🌹

A beautiful man, inside and out. A true gentleman, who will be greatly missed by so many.

I was only looking at my Kingswood rose this morning , still in bloom after a frost, the smell is incredible. What a lovely gift to leave behind.

A true gentleman. I will think of him when my roses bloom x

Carl Bennett Len had always believed in you with your rose breeding and I know you spoke highly of him. I had the pleasure to meet Len, he was a lovely man. Well done to you with these roses 🌹 please purchase one if anyone can. ❤️

Where can u purchase from please ?

Oh no that’s so sad. We have 4 of the beautiful Kingswood roses at home and love them.

Love it Vicki x

This friendly cat has been resident at Kingswood Trust for over a week....does anyone recognise it ? We will take it to the vet if still here next week. Thanks 😊

Comment on Facebook

This is my cat ! I’m assuming you are on Barn Lane

Good morning.  Does anyone recognise this cat? It has been around Kingswood Trust for a few days but has no collar. It seems quite friendly and we would like to reunite it with its owner. Please feel free to share, particularly if you are near to Kingswood Trust and Albrighton areas. Thank you

UPDATE: We know shes not a stray and has a loving home. Thank you to all that have shared.

Comment on Facebook

She’s mine ! She lives at kats cradle cat rescue within spitting distance

The cat has a loving home at Kats Cradle and she likes to visit. Please do not feed her as she has plenty of food 24 hours a day and can be inside if she feels like it. Thank you

Aw, beautiful cat! Someone will be missing it. Perhaps you could take to a local vets and ask to scan for a microchip?

She’s now been missing 5 days and I’m worried sick

I hope she is OK.

Oriel you naughty girl.

Discover nature. Learn outdoors.

I’m an advocate for outdoor learning and I’m going to tell you why I believe nature is good for your health, so here goes…. Not enough people are getting outdoors often enough. Perhaps it is lack of time, too many things to do indoors, too much technology, tv screens...
