Newquay Beach School

New for September 2021

Beach School is run by Mark Jackson as part of our SEED sessions as an opportunity for parents and their children to spend time together, exploring the natural world, building new friendships and learning through play.


Each week we set out a number of  exciting activities for you to take part in if you choose to, though you are equally welcome to just come and have fun! Our sessions are designed to build confidence, creativity and resilience (not just in our children :)


Run by highly trained staff and including things like... rockpooling, building dens, natural art and crafts, story telling, using tools, lighting fires, outdoor cooking, going on treasure hunts, working together with others and generally having a wonderful time!


These sessions are run from local beaches with easy access and parking which will be chosen and circulated a couple of days prior using Signal App (https://signal.org/en/).



What should I bring?

A sense of adventure! Never leave home without a sense of adventure!

Warm clothes (for you and your little ones!) Layers are best and maybe a bag to keep them in (the clothes that is, not the children!)

Sun cream and a sun hat (maybe not in January though we can always hope!), otherwise warm hat and gloves.

Suitable footwear.

(socks... clean socks, which make really good mittens when its cold).

Waterproofs for when its time to dance in the rain.

A full change of clothes in the car (should they be needed).

Any medication if required (this is probably more apparent for a parent!).


Sessions currently run Thursday mornings from 10:00 - 11:30

If the session you would like to join is fully booked, or you can’t make Thursdays, please feel free to join our waiting list here and we'll alert you when new sessions become available.


We aim to start and finish on time and sometimes only have 30 mins changeover times so please be punctual to make the most of the session.



How much are the sessions?


Mums, Dads, Carers and Grandparents - Free

Tiny people under 12 months - Free (with a paying sibling)


Little people 12 months - 5 years of age:

When booking a half term membership £10/session/child and extra siblings cost £2/session.

Individual sessions may be available should there be any spaces left after the half term block has begun (please note there is an additional charge for these - PLEASE CHECK AVAILABILITY BEFORE BOOKING INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS



What happens if I can’t make a session?


We have introduced a system which we call SWAPAROO                                          

The idea is that if you know that you are going to be away on a particular date you can give/gift your session to a friend. They book as if for a single session but choose the Swaparoo paying option and aren’t charged any extra.

What happens if a session gets cancelled due to weather?

Ocasionally we may have to cancel a session due to extreme weather. We will avoid having to do this by looking at available venues, however should we be unable to identify somewhere suitable we will let you know the session is cancelled and will provide you with a full refund for that session.

Other stuff:

You can ask to join our closed Facebook group which is a place to find out news about what’s been going on and what’s in store and where you can connect with other members. You are welcome to post your own photos to this page, however please do not tag any of the photos (for safeguarding purposes.)
