There is a useful tool to search for resources by theme, curriculum subject and key stage as well as an interactive map. The Learning Zone is the place to find resources to help with a school or college project, find fun activities in the outdoors for young children or to find a walk taking in some of the fascinating sites of the Mendip Hills.
