AS/A2 - Science, Psychology and BSLT

The zoo is the perfect place for so many different subject areas for learning outside of the classroom and for AS and A2 level students we offer a great range of workshops, trails and resources in the topics we know best: science, psychology and business studies, leisure and tourism.

We really can bring the text book to life and we consult an expert panel for changes in the National Curriculum syllabus.  We’re uniquely positioned to offer a wide range of science workshops using our tremendous collection of artefacts (some of which are on loan to us from HM Customs), our real life stories of human/wildlife conflict and conservation efforts, and, of course, the zoo’s own animal and plant collection.

For business studies, leisure and tourism, the zoo is the perfect business for your students to base their research on. As we’re a charity, a conservation organisation and a visitor attraction we have to fulfill a diverse range of functions and our financial statements are ready and waiting for your students to access.

And for psychology students, what’s better than to be able to observe behaviours, for example communication and intelligence?

We offer workshops which last 50 minutes and which we run either in our classrooms or in the zoo, where students can see with their own eyes animal adaptations and/or behaviour; it’s so much better than images in PowerPoint!
