Schools

We offer a variety of packages to suit all budgets and requirements, for schools, nurseries, scouts, Brownies and other groups.

A visit to the wildlife park provides an educational and enjoyable day out for children and young people and helps develop first hand their understanding of and enthusiasm for wildlife conservation.
