The Education Centre

Chichester Harbour is a fascinating and beautiful coastal landscape, with a unique blend of land and sea. It has a wealth of opportunities for discovering the natural world. Our Education Centre, at Dell Quay, has spectacular views of the water and surrounding countryside and offers memorable and engaging school visits, full of real-world learning experiences, in a stunning coastal landscape. Our service helps young people and adults to discover the delights of wildlife and bring nature to life. We work to encourage future generations to value and conserve Chichester Harbour.

The Centre, located south of Chichester off the A27, has a well-equipped classroom with good facilities. The Education Office is above the classroom, and we offer a year-round programme of outdoor learning sessions.

  • Curriculum linked half or full day sessions
  • Varied, well-paced and age-appropriate
  • Led by our expert education professionals
  • Help build pupil resilience and character
  • Inspire on-going learning back in the classroom

We provide a range of primary and secondary programmes, which can be adapted to suit your individual requirements. We also offer outreach sessions: talks and workshops in schools and for community groups. Please contact us for more details on or 01243 789173.
