All our learning experiences are taught by our professional, enthusiastic and dedicated Learning Programme Teachers. The schools programme has been developed to align with the National Curriculum and all of our programmes are reviewed and updated to strengthen links to the New National Curriculum in 2014.
We use active participation, questioning and exploratory learning to inspire a sense of achievement, enjoyment and curiosity for the natural world. We cater for students of all ages, from reception through to secondary schools, colleges, and universities. We also run a variety of professional development courses for teachers and technicians throughout the year.
