The Education  team at the North York Moors National Park works hard to try and keep our costs as low as possible. The value for money we offer and the high quality of our courses means over 18,000 children and young people undertook learning activities with us last year. We do have a small bursary to support transport costs from schools in the least advantaged areas around the National Park.

Costs per pupil from 1st September 2017: Primary (and nursery) prices

A morning (10am-12pm) or afternoon (1pm-3pm) session: £4.00   (Min. per group £60.00)

An 'extended' day (anything longer than a 'short day', up to 9am to 4.30pm): £6.50 (Min. £97.50)
