Schools

A range of options

Learning should be fun! 

For groups of twenty or more school children, we offer discounted admission rates and four unique educational packages that are an optional bolt-on to your visit.

Making it easy for you

All groups are met by a member of staff on the bus who will issue wrist bands.

Groups are taken into the park and if a cabin has been hired, packed lunches can be dropped off there. If not, bags can be left under the lean-to.

The host will carry out a formal introduction to the whole group and give a brief health and safety talk.

To check availability please email bookings@adventurevalley.co.uk or call 0191 386 8291. Once you’ve confirmed availability, please complete the booking form at the bottom of this page.

Pizza Chefs – £2 extra per child

For a minimum of 20 paying children.

Before handling any food and becoming Pizza Chefs, all the children are first taken to wash their hands.

This activity helps children to understand the field-to-fork process. We explain what ingredients have gone into making the dough and go back a stage to show them a wheat plant and the bare grain.

We then hand out individual balls of dough to roll and place on their own pizza tray.

Once all the children have made and decorated their own pizza they are taken to wash their hands again and allowed to go and play in the Indoor Play Town while the pizzas are cooked ready for them to eat for lunch.

The afternoon is their own free time to explore Adventure Valley.
