Schools & Groups

Guided Educational Tours

Children are our main focus at The Ark and we feel their education into the world of nature, wildlife and environment is as important as academic subjects. Introduce your pupils to farming, food and the environment right here at The Ark Open Farm.

At the Ark Open Farm we are very passionate about children’s education into the world of nature, farming and the environment. Guided tours are tailored to suit all

ages and needs of your group.  Tours are led by an experienced member of staff who have a wealth of knowledge about the animals and the farm environment.  We encourage lots of hands on active learning, through cuddling some animals and feeding lots too. 

We can work the tour around subjects the children are learning in school. For example if it is about a certain animal, lifecycle, habitat or time of year we can focus more on this to help give the children more information on what they are learning.

We can take in any size group, whether it be one class or a whole school  we have plenty of facilities for everyone.
