Due to recent Government guidelines surrounding Coronavirus (Covid-19), our outreach programme is currently on hold.

Sessions outside the Zoo include some of our smaller animals, and we'll also bring some of our biofacts such as skulls, skins, horns and stuffed specimens.

Please make sure you book well in advance as our Outreach sessions are very popular!

Outreach sessions 

Outreach sessions cover the same topics that we offer in the Zoo covering Early years, Key Stages 1- 3, 14-19 years, special educational needs, and FE level. These sessions meet the requirements of the National Curriculum or exam board specification if required. 

You can find more information about the sessions we offer here.


  • £85.00 for session within 30 minutes’ drive of the Zoo
  • £130.00 for session within one hour’s drive of the Zoo
  • £60.00 per session for any additional sessions booked, regardless of distance


We are also happy to come to your school to present assemblies. These can cover a range of interesting topics, for example -  Endangered Species & Habitats (Key Stage 2) to Climate Change and Wildlife (Key Stage 3-4) or the Zoo as a Business (KS3 – 4).
