SCHOOL VISITS

"ENTHUSIASM ABOUT ANIMALS AND NATURE IS INFECTIOUS AND ZOO VISITORS ARE HIGHLY 'SUSCEPTIBLE' TO EDUCATION"

We have a strong commitment to environmental education and the zoo is a great place to learn all about the creatures with whom we share the world. Our education team can enhance a class visit to the zoo with talks, demonstrations and animal encounters tailored to the relevant curricula/syllabuses so that you get the maximum benefit from your visit ensuring it will be a lesson they will never forget!
DISCOUNTED ADMISSION FEES

Education school visit rates for parties of 20 or more paying people. These rates are only available during normal school term times only and not during school holidays.

You know your children best so it is up to you to decide the number of adults you need to adequately supervise your children. We will give you 1 free supervising adult ticket (age 18+) for every 10 paying children.

GIFT SHOP

Our trained staff will welcome you to our gift shop, but it is useful for us to know if your group is planning to visit the gift shop, this is to ensure we can provide adequate staffing levels to efficiently deal with the larger numbers of children. If we know how much your children have to spend we can offer mini-deals to your group, so they get better value!

 

GOODY BAGS

Sometimes there just isn’t enough time to fit it all in and a trip to the gift shop is often rushed, solve the problem - just grab and dash with your pre-booked goody bags. These can be adapted to suit your group and topic of study. Our standard better value goody bag is £3.50 inc VAT, although we can adapt these depending on your needs, bespoke items start at just 80p for a zoo pencil. So contact the zoo office to discuss your goody bags contents.

 
SAFETY GUIDELINES

Download our safety guidelines to assist you with your risk assessment. If you plan to visit the zoo to carry out a risk assessment please make yourself known at the front gate when paying your admission fee, please bring the receipt you will be given on the day of the school visit and the amount will then be deducted from your group fee.
