In addition to our amazing aquarium experience, we work closely with schools to develop information that engages and inspires young people. Self-guided tours and Workshops for schools are available, and we give daily creature presentations. Throughout the year, we host a program of fun events to raise awareness of marine conservation issues and threats to our sea creatures.

KS1-KS4 pupils have the opportunity to learn:

In Geography

  • To identify the different habitats of the world, focusing on oceans and rainforests

In Science

  • To understand that animals have different adaptations to survive in their habitats
  • To define and understand the terms 'habitat', 'micro-habitat', 'life-cycle' and 'eco-system'
  • To use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things
  • To recognise that environments can change and that this can pose dangers to living things
