How the day works
We will send all of your wristbands out to you before the date of your visit, allowing for a super speedy and smooth entry into the zooquarium with minimal waiting.
The aquarium takes about an hour to walk around and you are welcome to join any talks and feeds that occur throughout the day, if available. The amount of time you stay is up to you. Many schools visit us in the morning, take advantage of the neighbouring beach for activities and visit us again before the coach picks them up.
We conduct our own risk assessments and provide guidance for teachers. We encourage teachers to make a preview visit before bringing a group to conduct their own Risk Assessment, which we will happily provide free entry for. Further information is available on request.
Teacher preview visits
In order to make the most of your school visit we recommend that you take advantage of one of our free teacher preview visits to familiarise yourself with the exhibits and our facilities. Visit the customer services desk and notify them that you are doing a teacher preview visit to gain access to the aquarium and a run through of how your booking will run on the day.
(Please note: School I.D. must be shown and the teacher attending the preview visit. Limited to 1 per class. This teacher must attend on the day of your visit)
The gift Shop Area
A wide variety of gifts are available from our gift shop, with items from £1.00 upwards (subject to availability).
To remove the added stress of supervising a class of children through the gift shop we offer a ready-made gift bag service. You can either choose the contents during your pre visit, over the phone or on the day of your visit. Prices for this will vary depending upon availability, and we will be happy to assist in selecting appropriate items for your group. We also have a Rock and Ice cream offer for £2.00 per child, each child will receive a small ice cream and small rock. We also have an offer for an individual ice creams for just £1.50 each. These must be paid for prior to the date of your visit, ideally when making payment with the rest of the trip.
Access for all
The Sealife Adventure building is designed to provide access for all. Should you need a hand at any point on your visit, please ask a member of staff, recognisable by their blue uniform. The toilets are situated by the admissions and gift shop.
What our schools think!
We came for a school trip in July 2021, the trip was amazing! We were greeted by a member of staff who was fantastic with the children and went through the safety rules with them. They were also so kind to give us tickets for the children who were unable to come on the day to use at a later date. Other members of staff were also fantastic, like in the gift shop and even the security staff who helped to make sure we didn’t get in the way of the members of the public and vice versa.
There was so much to see at the zooquarium and the children loved the penguins in particular. The children have said this was the best school trip they have ever had and that they will remember it forever! We all had such a fantastic day, learnt lots and Sealife adventure made it such an easy, fun experience for the children (and staff helpers!) I would highly recommend Sealife adventure for school trips – an amazing aquarium and fantastic staff.
I hope this is ok and thanks again for a brilliant day!
How Green House School
I just wanted to thank you all for my class trip to Sealife today. They had a brilliant time!
There had been an oversight by me as I had not booked my class in as thought this had been done by my school office but Andrew and Hannah on your customer service desk were amazing. They were polite friendly cheerful and understanding I am truly grateful to them for helping me out and for ensuring the children all had an amazing time.
You should be very proud of your staff they are a credit to your company and certainly eased and diffused any teacher stress I was feeling. Thankyou all so much and please send my grateful thanks to them both.
