Education Visits

We offer guided tours and workshops on-site at Askham Bryan Wildlife Park for KS1 and KS2 learners.

Our interactive interpretation lets learners explore a variety of topics through play-led learning, whilst our fun and engaging workshop sessions allow children to meet some of our residents’ face to face, and incorporate multisensory  learning experiences.

We provide template risk assessments for the site, and ensure that we are providing a safe learning environment for learners of all ages.
