What is a Beach School?

Beach school is a way to take advantage of the natural environment of the beach to provide children with a one-of-a-kind learning experience. At Motcombe we aim to blend an academic curriculum with outdoor activities, allowing children to learn in a hands-on and engaging way.

Benefits of Beach Schools

Connection with Nature

At beach school, children have the opportunity to connect with nature. The beach at Eastbourne can inspire curiosity and a sense of wonder, making learning more meaningful and memorable. From building pebble towers to experiencing the waves lapping around their feet, our children are transported to a happy place inside where they can embrace the wonders of nature.

Physical and Mental Well-being

Spending time at the beach has been proven to have numerous health benefits, including reduced stress and improved mental well-being. Our beach school offers children the chance to learn in a place that promotes both physical activity and relaxation. Eastbourne has a huge beach area giving the children plenty of space to move and explore in a safe and supervised location or just lie down, relax and watch the clouds and waves dance around them.

Hands-On Learning

From studying beach life to conducting beach clean-ups, beach schools offer a variety of hands-on learning opportunities that can enhance children’s understanding of the world around them. This type of learning approach can lead to better retention and engagement. We know that our children love going to the beach and is always one of their favourite memories during their time with us
