Fantastic trip for our Year 1 class. The children were engaged the whole way around the zoo. It was a fun filled day of learning and fresh air. The zoo provided adequate hand washing facilities, plenty of toilet throughout the zoo and a great lunch area to sit and eat. (October 2019 - Primary)




Excellent day out. Activities well pitched for the age of the children, good mix of practical hands on and time to explore at leisure. (October 2019 - Primary)

It was a lovely day in which the children thoroughly enjoyed. The zoo has certainly improved over the past few years which is lovely as there was a variety of animals for my children to explore and learn more about. The workshop we arranged for the children was very successful as the wonderful workers mirrored what the children had been learning in class. (July 2019 - Primary)

Children loved it! (July 2019 - Primary)




A great experience for all. A wide variety of beneficial experiences, partially the feeding talks where the children enjoyed asking their own questions to the Zoo Keeper to broaden their learning. (July 2019 - Primary)

The children reaqlly enjoyed the experience of the zoo trip. The only annoyance was the attitude from members of staff when visited to do risk assessment- not very accomodating or forward with information regarding our visit with our school children. (June 2019 - Primary)

Another excellent day out with only positive feedback form the students and staff. Which was great considering it rained all day! (January 2019 - Secondary)




We took 270 children and 48 adults to Banham Zoo and had a brilliant time even in the rain. We had an amazing day, everyone went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The children enjoyed the talks given by the keepers at feeding time, the Amazing Animal Show, seeing Father Christmas and the food. The catering staff cooked hot meals for everyone and made sure everyone had enough. Thank you from all the staff and children from Eastgate Academy. (December 2018 - Primary)

Discovery session - children had to be very patient whilst waiting to hold/stroke the animals - might be better to have an activity to complete whilst waiting. They didn't take note of phobias even though they asked if anyone had any phobias. They didn't warn the person that they were bringing out the animal and didn't give them a chance to leave or move away from it. (March 2018 - Primary)
