Empower your pupils to care about British Wildlife!

We are committed to creating fun, memorable learning experiences for pupils, which will inspire their curiosity and love of British wildlife.  We help pupils to reconnect with nature and encourage them to discover what they can do to protect the environment.

 

On-Site Learning

Our curriculum linked sessions, led by our experienced learning team, are interactive, fun and creative. We aim to fill the gaps left by the narrowing curriculum and bring children’s’ natural love for nature to the surface.

Please get it touch to discuss how we can support your curriculum.

  • Fun, hands-on sessions
  • Linked to the national curriculum
  • Onsite education centre
  • Outdoor learning experiences
  • Sessions priced from £2.50 per pupil
  • Choose from 1 hour, half day or full day sessions

 

Please be aware that we are a working animal hospital.  For the welfare of sick, injured and orphaned animals, we are committed to minimising human contact, so that they can be released back into the wild. Our Education Policy is to encourage empathy with and observation of wildlife in their natural habitats. We do not use live animals in our learning sessions, either on-site or in outreach sessions.

Need help funding an extracurricular activity or on-site visit?  Speak to your PTA and see if they can help to finance the activity and transport costs. PTA’s are often looking for projects to fund that develop children’s learning outside of the classroom. You can also ask them to put on a special fundraising event to raise money to support these visits.
