Every year over 30,000 primary and high school pupils visit The Deep for their school trips and enjoy a fantastic range of workshops in our purpose built learning centre.
Workshops, presentations and hands-on activities are delivered to groups from pre-school pupils to post sixteen. A wide selection of workshops are available to choose from including some of our old favourites such as The Big Blue Sea (KS1), Slime Time (KS2) and Great White Mystery (KS3) as well as some exciting new additions including Turtle Art (KS1), Just Keep Swimming(KS2) and Adaptation – The Need for Speed (KS4).
Enjoy a unique and memorable experience as you travel from the beginning of time and into the future. Dive into exciting new freshwater exhibits: Living Rivers and the Amazon Flooded Forest and learn about these breath taking river systems. You will also encounter our breath-taking coral reef at the Lagoon of Light, interesting creatures in our Slime exhibit and some of our biggest sharks in the Endless Oceans tank.
