Home Education

We offer opportunities to home educators for self-guided park visits and monthly bookable learning sessions.

Home education rates are only available Monday to Friday, through Hampshire school term times. You can view the term dates here.

Bookings must be created and paid for online; we can no longer process non-booked home educator tickets at the gate or take bookings over the phone. If you arrive without a booking, you will need to pay standard entry rates.

Home Educator Sessions

Each month (excluding August) we will focus on a different topic, delivered through a range of engaging activities aimed at families. Sessions run from14.30 to 15.30 and there is plenty to keep everyone busy learning about the natural world. 

Session dates are released 3-months at a time and will be listed on this web page. Booking your place in advance for any of the monthly sessions is essential; this can be done up until midday on the day of the sessions (subject to availability). 

The cost of the ticket also permits you for entry to the zoo for a self-guided park visit, as well as the activity. If you are an annual member, you will just pay the £2 supplement for the session if you bring your pass with you on the day.
