We're connecting our local community with nature, we want to give local schools and colleges increased access to our zoo and its learning opportunities. By working together, we hope to inspire and empower more children, young people and their families to care about wildlife and take action to protect it.

What is the Education Access Scheme?

For just £500, the equivalent of approximately 60 students visiting in the Summer-term, organisations who join will access a range of benefits for the rest of this academic year which includes:

  • Unlimited free education tickets to visit London Zoo*
  • Access to a range of educational workshops for an additional fee of £36 each
  • Use of our teaching spaces to host an INSET day at the zoo
  • A designated Senior Learning Officer to help your school make the most of the scheme
  • Access to other special educational events across the year for teachers and students

* Term-time only, subject to availability based on our daily capacity.
