What makes us a great choice?

Whether you are bringing your class for a reward trip, focussed learning day or a mixture of the both, Paultons Park is the ideal venue. Paultons is home to over 70 rides, attractions and animals, set in 140 acres of beautiful gardens. Enjoy a workshop in Professor Blast's Learning Lab. This highly themed immersive classroom attraction? will capture student's imagination and provide a stunning setting for a curriculum-based session. Hands-on learning is encouraged in our Science Explorer activity, where the physics behind the rides comes to life through a series of interactive exhibits. New for 2018, our themed are Little Africa will transport children to a distant area, where they will come face to face with a range of interesting birds and animals. To compliment this, we have a host of new biology workshops – all including ‘close encounters’. Other workshops in the lab include ICT - Ride Control where students programme their very own K?NEX SkySwinger using a laptop and Flow Go control box. Out of the Lab, we run a popular half-day workshop called Forces and Materials where students are led on a tour of the park to discover (and experience) a range of forces for themselves. For older students we run series of focussed presentations including customer service, marketing and ICT. All presentations are supported by student booklets and a CD containing resources. Paultons Park Education Department is a LOTC Quality Badge Holder and is led by a qualified teacher. We will support schools through the planning and risk assessment process and are able to offer advice on all aspects of the trip. Paultons is also able to offer bespoke workshops to support any area of the curriculum Paultons Groups and Education Officer works full-time and is available to discuss any requirements. Our website contains a number of handy resources for schools to access.
