What we offer on a school trip
Our school programme is perfect for introducing pupils to a range of scientific topics and encouraging excitement and curiosity about marine phenomena in the natural world. It has been designed to support several core elements of the National Curriculum.
Discovery Tour - This is a 45 minute tour of the aquarium led by a marine expert. We can tailor the tour to focus on specific creatures or topics - just let us know in advance. Afterwards you are free to continue exploring at your own pace (+£1:50 pp)
Behind the Scenes Tour - This is an approximately 25 minute tour with privileged access to the working areas usually closed to the public. Students will learn about our extensive breeding, research and conservation programmes, see how the fish food is prepared and discover how we care for our creatures. (Minimum 15 students per tour) (+£1:50 pp)
Please note the Discovery Tour and Behind the Scenes Tour are only available during term time dates.
