Children enjoyed looking at the animals. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10076 )




We had a very unstructured day at the zoo and it was great! (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9663 )




The students enjoyed their time at the zoo especially feeding the elephants and playing in the parks. (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9643 )

Great once we got passed the reception and found our way to the information point.It would have been nice for someone to have met us at reception to take us through to the information room. Lunch was very rushed - half an hour to eat and clear up was rather quick for younger children. (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9295 )




Great trip, children loved the experience. (January 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9216 )

Really good day building relationships with year 7 and between the new Y7 students (October 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 6855 )




Very disappointed that my class had to have their session in a tent in 32 degree heat without an adequate cooling system felt there were not enough staff at the zoo to meet the enquiry demands of so many school trips on that day (October 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6847 )

Very enjoyable trip gor staff and children. The educational session was at the right level for the children and linked to our animal topic more than our minibeast topic. (July 2018 - Primary - Post No: 5507 )

Would like more interaction on the habitats talk. There was only some at the end of the talk, the children enjoyed this but would have liked longer. (July 2018 - Primary - Post No: 5324 )

The communication and organisation of the Zoo was brilliant. The workshop which was included with the price was informative and age appropriate. It was interactive and consolidated children's learning of animals. (June 2018 - Primary - Post No: 4884 )




Students gained an insight into the use of animal phycology and enjoyed the animal training. (June 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 4836 )

Brilliant talk on adaption. Better than I had hoped. Children enjoyed it thoroughly and learned a lot. The only downside was small delay in storing and collecting packed lunches from storage. (February 2018 - Primary - Post No: 1483 )

The staff were helpful and the children enjoyed their endangered species talk. (February 2018 - Primary - Post No: 1132 )
