Paultons Park Education Team


Description

Paultons Park, set in over 140 acres of beautiful garden, is home to over 60 rides and attractions. The stunning mix of rides, animals and gardens make it the perfect setting for a great school trip.

Whether you are taking part in one of the curriculum focused park-led workshops, or using Paultons for a recreational trip, there really is something for everyone.

Paultons run a range of workshops from Nursery age right up to University students. Taught by an experienced teacher and their team, we can offer bespoke programmes to meet any learning objective.

Our most popular workshop at KS1 and KS2 is our half-day "forces and materials". Using the rides as a stimulus, children spend the morning in the park with our staff, looking at and experiencing the forces and motions on our rides. We make clear links between the rides, their forces and the materials used to create a safe and fun riding experience.

For older students, we run focussed 45 minute class based talks covering subjects such as Customer Service, Marketing and a business overview. We also run an energy transfer session out in the park - using our biggest rides as a base for the study.

Paultons holds the CLOTC quality badge and employ an Education Officer full-time. Therefore, there is always somebody on hand to answer your questions and guide you through every stage of your trip preparation.

Workshop was excellent Well worth staying until 5pm (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13233 )




The Education Team at Paulton's Park are fantastic. From the initial stages of booking the trip through to the actual visit, the team have been nothing but helpful. Jenna who ran our workshop was brilliant. She pitched the session exactly right to really engage the class and therefore the children got a lot out of it. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11705 )

The quality of the educational take was excellent and Andy tailored it to our specific requirements. He covered marketing, customer service and managing visitor flow an this linked really well to several learning objectives. He is also very helpful during the year if there are any further queries from students or staff. He is a real enthusiast. (October 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 6851 )
