The Education departments at Paignton Zoo, Living Coasts, and Newquay Zoo offer an Annual Discovery Pass for schools and colleges. A one-off annual fee provides excellent value and gives you the opportunity to make full use of our zoos as an educational resource throughout the year.

The pass is offered for the academic or financial year; starting from either 1st September or 1st April. 

The costs will depend on your school/college roll number and whether you require a single or dual site Pass. Typically, a Pass is purchased for Paignton Zoo and/or Living Coasts, however if you are interested in a Pass to cover all three of our Zoos please contact us for more information.

Subscription to this package entitles you to the following, subject to terms and conditions:

  • Free admission to the Zoo, for visits booked in advance
  • Free teaching sessions for under 16’s (subject to availability)
  • Pre-session risk assessment visits for school staff
  • Help from our team in integrating our input into your topic or subject area
