Education programme

Five Sisters Zoo is an ideal location for a fun, educational day out for schools, nurseries and groups at any time of year. Our education programmes are linked with the Curriculum for Excellence, including our series of interdisciplinary class work booklets and new outdoor learning programme for 2016/2017.

During your trip we will arrange and deliver a session(s) to meet your particular learning outcomes and level to complement your classroom learning within the core theme of Biodiversity and Interdependence. This includes both indoor and outdoor learning opportunities throughout the year, understanding, evaluating and reporting biodiversity issues. We encourage discussion between teaching staff and the zoo education team pre-visit to make sure your learners get the most out of their trip.

To book or discuss your trip today, email or call 01506 870000.
