Education at Drusillas

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 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

Our education sessions are run by Drusillas experts, and include creative teaching methods and hands-on experience with a variety of animals.

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.

Teachers' Preview Days

We hold regular preview days for teachers who are interested in bringing groups to Drusillas. Please contact the Zoo's Education Department for further details.
