Keeper School (12-14 years)

You are here

Keeper School is a programme designed to enthuse and inspire young people aged 12-14 with an interest in animals and the natural world. Keeper School will support the high school science curriculum through workshop and practical activities and will provide valuable experience to support further education applications. Keeper School runs from 10.00am to 3.00pm. The price includes one free adult admission for the day of the course, car park pass, discount in the shop and café.

Due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus COVID-19 (see our latest updates here) we have taken the decision to suspend all sales and bookings of Courses at this time. All current bookings will still be honoured as long as we remain open. Please keep checking back as we will open bookings again once this crisis is over.


For anyone with a currently unbooked voucher, we will be looking to extend your expiry date once we are accepting bookings again. Further information will be emailed to you when you are able to book again.


Thank you for your understanding.
