SCHOOL
TRIPS

We combine hands-on experiences with fascinating educational workshops to make sure that your pupils learn the most about our amazing aquatic world!

Schools Love SEA LIFE Manchester!

We've been rated the best destination for Science based learning!

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 at most sites, and we give daily creature presentations

If you’re hungry for more, we offer a Behind the Scenes Tour, where our expert staff will fill you in on the daily diet of our creatures, and the breeding habits of seahorses! And throughout the year, we host a program of fun events, like Turtle Fest and Shark Week, to raise awareness of marine conservation issues and threats to our sea creatures. 

Early Years

My Special Aquarium

This workshop is suitable for pre-school children aged 3 to 5 years. It gives your pupils a fun and memorable experience that helps them to ‘understand the world’ - one of the four learning and development requirements of the DfE Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.


It involves the children learning basic facts about some of our key creatures (e.g. how many legs do starfish have etc…). After this group activity the pupils complete a poster activity and draw their own aquarium.
