We have fantastic facilities at the Glencoe Visitor Centre to offer a variety of topics to secondary schools. As well as continuing with the 5-14 Environmental Studies curriculum, we offer a number of topics and encourage self-led classes to come and visit Glencoe.  We have a number of facilities including a state of the art education room complete with digital projector; slide projector; dvd and video player, microscopes, computer access points and workbenches.  The visitor centre provides the ideal place to recoup at the end of a field visit.
We have some of the most spectacular landscape, geology and wildlife in Britain.  We can offer an activity led by our rangers or Regional Education Officer or alternatively your school could visit the visitor centre and look around the exhibition without a ranger guide.  Either way, we’d love to see your school in Glencoe!
