What’s it all about?

Zoo School is an activity club that runs during the school holidays, aimed at children aged 8-13 years old. However, if your animal lover is not old enough for Zoo School yet – our Wildlife Clubs are designed for our children aged 4-7 years old!

Zoo School is a week full of practical, hands on zoo activities. The the children don’t realise how much they’re learning as they’re having too much fun! Take a look at the pictures to see what kind of things the Rangers get up to while they’re here.
