School Trips

Lake District Wildlife Park is a wonderful learning experience whether you are looking to bring a pre-school class for the first time or a school group to develop a classroom topic. Learning and Discovery is what Lake District Wildlife Park does best!

Bring your class or year group to the Lake District Wildlife Park and experience a fun and interactive day out.

The Lake District Wildlife Park Education Programme has been completely revised and updated for 2020-21 academic year, focusing on science and cross-curricular work with a strong emphasis on developing international and environmental awareness, across the range of ages and abilities. It aims to accommodate all ages and abilities from nursery to KS4.

Learning & Discovery sessions and resources  have been devised by our educator to focus on the Life and Living Processes attainment target of the National Curriculum, as well as cross-curricular topics. An educational visit to the Lake District Wildlife Park will assist you in the teaching of ‘British Values’ and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development (SMSC).
