Charity Number - 1198212

The Goodwood Education Trust is an independent environmental education charity operating on the Estate. It promotes awareness and understanding of the natural environment and sustainable agriculture among children and young people, particularly those who are disadvantaged or vulnerable. Established in 1976 by the 10th Duke of Richmond, the principal areas of operation are Home Farm, the estate’s working organic mixed farm, and Seeley Copse, a 20 acre area of semi-ancient woodland.

Educational Visits

The Goodwood Education Trust has been providing outdoor learning opportunities for young people for almost 50 years. We offer year-round Farm Visits and woodland activity days, and term-time sessions of Forest School for regular groups.
02

Community

At the Goodwood Education Trust we specialise in connecting children with nature who might otherwise face barriers in spending time outside. We know that spending time in nature can lead to improved mental wellbeing, physical health, increased confidence, nature connectedness, understanding and engagement in daily life.
03

Facilities

The Goodwood Education Centre is the starting point for the majority of educational visits. This purpose-built, sustainable facility has a bright and airy indoor space for up to 60 children.

The children haven't stopped talking about their visit to Goodwood Home Farm, and we believe that this experience will have a lasting impact on their understanding of agriculture and the environment. It is wonderful to see our young learners so enthusiastic about their newfound knowledge.
