Home Education Events
At Noah's Ark Zoo Farm, we’re a fantastic place to learn more about nature and offer a great opportunity to come and see the real thing! A trip to us is fun, educational and memorable and with over 100 animal species to see (from chickens to elephants!) we're an amazing location for your next trip. Whether you're visiting as part of a home education group or you just want to visit with your family, we have options to suit all.
Home School to Zoo School
Our Home School to Zoo School events invite home educators and their families to the zoo for just £7.50 per person. This special rate includes admission to the zoo for the allocated days and informative keeper talks that take place during the day.
During the event, the education team run interactive and hands-on animal workshops with our smaller, friendly animals or arrange other fun activities/zoo trails.
Our Home School to Zoo School events are a great opportunity to learn about the Noah's Ark Education programme, see some amazing animals and meet with other home school families and groups.
All of our workshops and educational signage are rooted firmly in the National Curriculum and offer a fun and hands-on way to learn about the natural world.
Our education programme has been awarded the national 'Quality Badge' from the Learning Outside the Classroom Scheme in recognition of our education provision for visiting schools and groups.
In 2018 the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) awarded Noah's Ark the Education Bronze Award for its work with local schools on the last descent education programme, educating children about the damming of the Blue Nile and how this is affecting local communities and animals.
Noah’s Ark has been recognised for its contribution to education with their work for the Ark For All Accessibility project, winning a silver BIAZA award in 2019. We introduced the ‘Ark for All’ project to enable more visitors to enjoy a fun, educational and active day at the zoo.
The zoo has also won multiple other awards for our enclosure design, customer service and sustainable efforts.
