Learning & Discovery

Our mission is to connect our guests with the natural world and our Learning & Discovery team does just that! Whether you are a teacher looking for inspiration for your class or the parent of an animal lover our team has something designed just for your needs. 

We offer a range of educational activities for schools including workshops, guided tours, enhanced discovery days and school outreach 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!

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.
