Leeson House Field Studies Centre – Curriculum-Linked Activity Days, Residential School Trips & Outreach

Leeson House

Leeson House is the ideal venue for Primary to A Level fieldtrips. The house is a secluded Grade Two mansion situated near Swanage, Dorset on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. It is close to many classic geography, geology and biology fieldwork sites and set within 7 acres of inspiring and diverse grounds.

Leeson House can accommodate up to 80 students and 12 accompanying staff and residential bookings are taken 7 days a week throughout the whole year. We also offer a wide range of day visits and outreach activities.
