What's Special About Start Bay

The Centre is located above the village of Slapton with stunning views across the Start Bay Coast. It is an extension of Slapton Ley Field Centre located in the village. Slaton Ley has been awarded the Primary and Secondary Geography Quality Mark by the Geographical Association. As well as the Quality Badge by The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom by demonstrating that they consistently deliver high quality teaching and learning experiences and manage risk effectively.
