Educational Zoo School Trip

Come and enjoy the most fun and educational school trip in Sussex!

Experience a combination of fun and education like no other! Whether you’re bringing a pre-school class for their first school trip and zoo experience, a primary group to explore a class topic or secondary or college students to study business or biology, we’re dedicated to offering an engaging and exciting experience.  

Your Visit

We pride ourselves on being an educational zoo, as such, our education sessions are not only run by Drusillas experts but they also include creative teaching methods and hands-on experience with a variety of animals. We are also proud to have been awarded a Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge for another year!

Learning sessions are accompanied by teacher packs containing background information, details of Drusillas animals and session outlines. We can provide curriculum-linked sessions and resources for students from pre-school to BTEC and A-Level.

With free adult ratios, a choice of two picnic areas, a simple booking procedure and plenty of space for coaches near to the entrance, we take care of the details so you can enjoy the experience with your group.
