(November 2019 – February 2020)

We’re pleased to offer free entry to the zoo for 42,000 school pupils visiting between 1 November 2019 and 29 February 2020, in a bid to broaden the impact of our work as a conservation and education charity inspiring the next generation of conservationists.

We’re welcoming bookings from schools who were unable to take advantage of the initiative in previous years (2017/18 and 2018/19). This offer is open to Early Years and Foundation through to Year 13 pupils. Independent schools are not eligible to book in this first round of tickets free places.

If your school meets the Terms and Conditions then we’d love to hear from you. The number of free admission places and admissions per day is limited; you may therefore be asked to visit on another day and/or book using our discounted educational rates. Please make sure you read our T+C’s before booking.


For any enquiries regarding educational visits, please contact us on the details below.
