High quality workshops and excellent facilities (October 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16693 )




Fantastic day out for my Year 6 class. A well organised itinery from the staff at Conkers. (September 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16185 )




Was a fantastic trip and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. Wish that we could have stayed longer or done more activities. (September 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16033 )

A very good day out (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 12775 )




The workshop didn't have enough resources for the workshop for the last group. The workshop leader didn't always introduce herself to the children and lead the group and nobody did a welcome talk to the children this time. The facilities were acceptable and systems for lunchbox/bag storage were fine. The train driver kindly collected items dropped on the train! There were older children in the playground acting inappropriately around the children (swearing, boisterous). (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12320 )




Very good 2 day visit. The Cans, Compost and Paper was excellent (run by John) and very informative. The Underwater Wonderland was a little disappointing compared to last year. The leader of the activity was pleasant but didn't reinforce safety instructions as adequately as last year. As a consequence, 1 person from each of our groups fell in this year. No-one from either group fell in last year!!! The water was not deep - but unpleasant for the children concerned who had wet feet and clothes for the rest of the day!! The leader also appeared to know less about her subject matter this time and did not talk to the children about the food chain in a pond as the person did last year. The children did enjoy their experience however. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11686 )

Workshop and ranger was very good. The workshop enhanced the learning that had already taken place in the school. However, some of the exhibits in the Discovery Zone were tired or out of action. (April 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11098 )
