SCHOOL TRIPS

We make sure your pupils get right up close to the amazing creatures in our themed displays. After all, the more they see the more they'll learn.

Schools love SEA LIFE!

At the Cornish Seal Sanctuary we want to make sure your school trip is both educational and fun! During your visit your pupils will get up close and personal with amazing creatures as we believe the more they see and discover the more they learn!

We have a range of top quality learning resources available to download in advance of your visit so you can plan how to make the most of your trip – focusing on key curriculum topics including Behaviour, Conservation and Food Chains and Ecosystems we have prepared fun resources to maximise the learning opportunities during your time with us!

Your class will come face to face with our adorable rescued residents and learn all about why they came to live at the Sanctuary. Your class will be able to follow the journey of rehabilitating Seals in Cornwall's Only Seal Rescue Centre & Hospital open to visitors.
