From education events to fun leisure visits, we have the complete experience for your school.

Education events and school visits

Wicksteed Park’s Education Programme is designed to be both fun and informative. The sessions are designed to link with National Curriculum objectives, and they are delivered by our experienced staff team who encourage children to engage and explore a wide range of subjects and themes.

Using our unique surroundings, schools can explore the different habitats through pond dipping and mini beast hunts. There are opportunities to investigate science and physics through experiments in our playground laboratory, designing rides or building dens. Plus, discover more about social history told through the story of our founder and inventor Charles Wicksteed.

As part of the activities your school will have access to a learning space for the day and an opportunity to have a ride on our train or carousel and of course free time in the playground.

Looking to use the rides?
