Home Educators

Schools go free in ’23!

We are pleased to extend our Schools Go Free in ’23 offer to home educators on the following dates:

• September – 19th and 22nd

These dates will be open to children aged 5-16 years and there will be a limited number of spaces per day. As children must be accompanied, one adult will be admitted at a reduced educational rate per child. Our Engagement Team will be offering mini-sessions at enclosures for primary aged children and more advanced sessions for secondary children who want to push their learning.
