Schools and young people

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance is building a brighter future, one school at a time. Whether you’d like to book a visitor centre tour, want us to host an educational and inspirational assembly or fundraise for us, you can make a lasting impact and help us continue bringing the hospital to critically ill and injured patients.

Schools and young people

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance is committed to teaching children the importance of pre hospital care through in-depth assemblies and interactive challenges.


One of our schools representatives can host an engaging and educational assembly at your school. Even better, all visits can be worked to fit your schedule.


Visitor centre tour

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance have a Visitor Centre at both our airbases at Earls Colne and North Weald and we would be delighted to welcome your school.

Students can immerse themselves in our exciting 999 Experience, and might want to put on a helmet and sit in the pilot’s seat! They can listen to interesting facts and a wealth of background and operational information provided by our volunteer tour hosts and play our interactive game and test their knowledge with the quiz.
