Education

Chester Zoo is the perfect venue to bring textbooks to life!

With our 12,000 animals, our fantastic collection of artefacts and our first-hand experience of working with wildlife, the zoo is just the ticket for making dry facts come to life.

Our Discovery and Learning Team offers great curriculum-linked workshops and because they’re a bunch of wildlife enthusiasts they’ve tailored some to tie-in with our Go Orange campaign in the Autumn Term. And new for this academic year, they’ll be running a number of workshops in our amazing new exhibit, Islands.

Whether you’re interested in workshops or prefer a self-guided visit, we’re here to provide a great learning experience.

Just take a look in the menu at the Key Stage you’re interested in. All You Need to Know will give you the nitty-gritty to make your school visit to our exciting, multi-sensory venue a great educational day out.

If you want to chat to us, you can find our contact details on the Book Your Visit page.

We’re looking forward to meeting the conservationists of the future!

From September 2015 we will no longer be using live animals in our workshops but that won’t detract from the unique experience because your students will still be able to get lots of hands-on with our extensive collection of amazing artefacts from skulls and feathers to reptile and mammal skins.
