Bring learning to life
|“We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that Knowsley Safari has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.|
Learning & Discovery
Our mission is to connect our guests with the natural world and our Learning & Discovery team does just that! Whether you're a teacher looking for inspiration for your class or the parent of an animal lover, our team has something designed for your needs.
We offer a range of educational activities for schools including workshops and guided tours that help to bring the curriculum to life for both teachers and pupils alike.
And if your child really love animals then we know they’ll love being part of one of our Zoo Schools. We’ve got exciting programmes for 8 – 18 year olds, to help them get even closer to the animals and give them practical experience of what it might be like to work in a safari park!
Get Your School Involved
2020 has brought a lot of changes, especially to schools! So we've developed a brand new ONLINE offering, plus a newly adapted DAY TRIP in line with covid-19 safety guidelines.
YOUR SCHOOL DISCOVERY DAY
Your school trip on safari will be all about WELLBEING THROUGH WILDLIFE! Your day will feature a coach tour through the Safari Drive, a Foot Safari tour and a workshop with our expert educators.
Live Stream Safari School
This is more than just a 'virtual zoo tour'. With Live Stream Safari School we broadcast our amazing safari education sessions LIVE to your classroom! Our aim: to help those pupils and schools unable to physically visit the Safari to continue to learn and engage with nature and wildlife, benefiting wellbeing.
What is Children’s University?
Children’s University is a charity that offers children aged 5-14 an opportunity to learn outside the classroom and outside school hours. It focuses on rewarding participation, raising aspirations and encouraging engagement with learning- which is what the Learning and Discovery team at Knowsley are all about, so it was a perfect partnership for us.
