Very Good




We didn't go (January 2021 - Primary)

A good educational visit and the behind the tours extra package was worth the price. I felt that at times the venue was too busy as there were several schools booked in at one time. (February 2020 - Primary)

Lots of things to see and do. Children learnt about the delicate ecosystem of the oceans and the impact humans are having on it. (January 2020 - Primary)

Great places to visit, the children were always excited about what they saw and what there was to see next along the way. (January 2020 - Primary)

Good day out (December 2019 - Primary & Secondary)

Very enjoyable visit, staff extremely efficient and helpful when a child was taken ill. (November 2019 - Primary)

Great for lunchtime A range of animals very busy! (November 2019 - Primary)

Not very well organised. They knew that we had booked, but still insisted we join the queue and print off all out tickets. Nowhere for students to stand whilst this wa going on. (October 2019 - Secondary)

(August 2019 - Secondary)

The administration had made an error and we had been given a different date to the sea life centre staff, however we were still admitted (June 2019 - Primary)

(May 2019 - Primary)

(April 2019 - Secondary)

Sea Life Centre were not organised around lunch, our room for lunch was 20 minutes late with other schools still in them and when we did get in our tub with food and coats in was not there, meaning we had to talk to staff and have it collected and brought to us making the children wait another 10 minutes. In the end we didn't have lunch until after 1:30pm and only had 15 minutes before another school came in. (January 2019 - Primary)

(September 2018 - Primary)

Overall, a good experience. The Sea Life Centre provided adequate lunch rooms and were accommodating with time (as one group went 15 minutes early). Classes stayed together which worked better for us instead of splitting into smaller groups. It wold have been beneficial for all of us to start at the entrance as there was a lot of walking backwards and forwards at the beginning of the day. (July 2018 - Primary)

Very good visit, staff were friendly and helpful. Children enjoyed being able to see so many different sea animals and touch and feel them in their natural environment. (June 2018 - Primary)

A great experience for the Year 2 children. There was a lot of discussion and childen produced good recounts of the day. (April 2018 - Primary)

Only had one set of available toilets, due to building work, this caused a problem as there were three other schools plus members of the public. Morning sessions were brilliant, very quite, in the afternoon there needs to be a planned activity as the volume of the public increased considerably and this meant it was hard to move around with the class. (March 2018 - Primary)

(March 2018 - Primary)

SeaLife Centre was very congested with four other schools visiting at the time. Areas became very congested and unable to move at times. (March 2018 - Primary)

When organising the trip we couldn't contact the centre by phone. Communications by email were not responded to either but the day itself was great. (March 2018 - Primary)

Great tour and lots of information for children to take back to school with them. (February 2018 - Primary)

(January 2018 - Secondary)
