What to expect from a school visit

Last year, our acclaimed education programme welcomed over 25,000 schoolchildren to The Living Rainforest. Here is what teachers can expect:

  • An exciting learning environment with 700 species of tropical rainforest plants and animals, including free-ranging birds, butterflies and small reptiles
  • Guided tours ensure an engaging & immersive experience for all pupils
  • An education officer to help you get the best from your day
  • A timetable to help plan your day
  • Choice of four tours: Amazing Adaptations, Edible ForestSustainable Future and Rainforest Medicines
  • Teachers’ resources, including tour notes and worksheets, are available to download for each tour
  • Indoor space with an allocated area for your group and outdoor seating with an excellent enclosed play area for warmer days
  • Well stocked gift shop or goody bag service
  • Risk Assessment letter, Risk Assessment and Emergency evacuation procedure documents are provided

Each guided tour lasts approximately 50 minutes. Schools are asked to be punctual – we regret that groups arriving late may need to have their tours shortened.

School visit pricing

Guided tours cost £105 excluding VAT. A group consists of up to 15 students and two adults. Extra individuals must pay a small surcharge (please ask for further information at time of booking).There are three time slots for school groups: 10.30am, 11.40am and 12.50pm. Up to four groups may be booked per time slot. We have a well stocked gift shop or we offer a goody bag service which can be arranged in advance of your visit. Revenue from the shop helps us keep school visit charges low so please use this service if possible.
