School Tours & Field Studies
Inspire your pupils with a field trip to Kippure Estate in Wicklow
Would you like to bring your lessons to life? Do you want to take your pupils on a school trip that will really make a difference to their learning?
At Kippure Estate in Wicklow, we understand that there are some subjects that clearly benefit from hands on experience outside the classroom. That’s why we’ve carefully put together a wide range of themed school tours designed to complement your curriculum so that your students can fully appreciate everything you’ve been teaching them. Once they’ve seen for themselves how they can apply their lessons, it makes a massive difference to their studies.
Whatever the age of your pupils, we have a programme to suit their needs. We can provide everything from primary school tours right up to field studies in geography and ecology for the leaving cert. Whatever the age and stage of your class, we’ll make sure they get the most out of their day.
Check out our Adventure Centre website.
Our wide range of quality educational programmes include:
- Primary school tours that combine fun with education, including pirate training, Celtic warrior workshops and guided nature walks
- Junior Cycle Geography, aimed at supporting students in developing the skills they’ll need for senior level studies
- Leaving Cert Geographical Investigations from Ireland’s top provider
- Leaving Cert Ecology, giving students a chance to put what they’ve learned in the classroom into practice, including surveying, mapping a study area, etc.
Whichever programme you choose, you can be assured that it’s been carefully put together by our team to cover a broad spectrum of skills and topics to make sure that children engage with the material and get the most out of the day. If you have a specific idea or lesson plan you’d like us to work with, we’re always happy to put together a bespoke programme designed to meet your needs.
We’ll provide all the necessary worksheets and field equipment, so all you and your class need to do is show up – we’ve got the rest covered. We’ll even supply a selection of raingear if you haven’t brought your own, so no matter what the weather, you know you’ll still have a good day.
We don’t just deal with children either. If you feel that your staff could do with a break from the classroom, we have a wide range of fun and enjoyable team building exercises available, all designed to promote better communication, good morale and improved performance.
We have comprehensive €6.5 million public liability insurance covering all the participants in our activities. What’s more, we make sure that our staff members are first aid trained and are fully qualified and experienced in their particular field, so you know that we’ll really look after you.
