Introducing our groundbreaking eco-education project.

Utilising our unique CoralPod® system, Reef For Schools aims to introduce the truly amazing world of tropical reefs directly into Primary School classrooms to educate our younger generations and inspire our future conservationists.


CoralPodTM consists of a unique handcrafted design, made up of series of complex dome structures nested inside each other to create a rich artificial reef that can sustain coral, fish, and a wide variety of marine invertebrates, when installed onto baron or depleted seabed areas.

One of the most unique aspects of CoralPodTM is its fish nursery, which provides a safe environment for juvenile fish to hatch, grow and thrive. The system's design is simple yet effective, and it can be constructed locally anywhere in the world by local communities. This feature makes it a sustainable and accessible option for restoring coral reefs and supporting marine life globally.

CoralPodTM offers real hope for the restoration of coral reefs on a large scale, which are critical ecosystems for marine life and play an important role in maintaining the balance of the ocean's ecosystem. The project showcases the power of collaboration between different organisations and communities in creating innovative, quick and sustainable solutions for ecological restoration.


How our Reef for Schools educational program could benefit your pupils.


Introducing small coral ecosystems into primary schools has several benefits for both the students and the coral ecosystem itself. Firstly, it can serve as an educational tool for teaching students about coral reef ecology, biodiversity, and conservation. By observing and caring for the coral ecosystem, students can learn about the complex relationships between different species and the impacts of human activities on coral reefs.

Secondly, small coral ecosystems in schools can inspire students to take action to protect the environment. By experiencing the beauty and wonder of coral reefs firsthand, students can develop a sense of ownership and responsibility for the health of the oceans and the planet. They may become more aware of the impacts of their own actions, such as reducing plastic waste, conserving water, and minimising energy consumption.

Thirdly, small coral ecosystems can provide opportunities for interdisciplinary learning. Coral reefs are complex ecosystems that involve biology, chemistry, physics, and ecology. By incorporating coral ecosystems into science, math, and art classes, students can gain a broader perspective on the connections between different fields of study.


We work very closely with our partners at The Coral Centre in order to deliver field trips for visits to their centre. We can cater for a class to view the growing tanks, corals, CoralPods and all of the associated sea life that is involved at the centre. Or we can organise for smaller groups with a more dedicated approach to the subject and go more in depth with coral research, restoration and resilience.


As a Director and founding member of Future Oceans Foundation, Rob Peck organises short educational tours and talks around the focus of Coral restoration and the clean seas stories we are involved with. Rob is one of the foremost experts on coral in the UK and has many links to the research and educational world, to help guide pupils in this field.

If you’d like more information on how we can help you get involved with Reef for Schools at your school and start an incredible learning journey for your pupils.



We can guide you through funding opportunities and how to involve all of the school stakeholders to make this a unifying solution for your school.



We create relevant signage for each tank which is tailored to each school and their own particular reasons for having the tank in situ. and suiting all budgets.



We carry out a secondary visit for maintenance checks and fully engage with the relevant staff members to help set up a small but dedicated team of pupils to maintain and develop the tank.
