Why are Chessington great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

When students are enjoying a lesson it shows. It shows in their attention levels, in the effort they put in and the results they achieve. The Education Programme at Chessington World of Adventures Resort offers maximum educational value through unique and stimulating learning experiences and a focus on curriculum relevant workshops and content.

We have been accredited with the LOtC quality award badge, enabling us to help you with risk assessments, free teacher visits prior to your trip and educational resources to help you get the most out of the day. Importantly, your pupils can take part in a number of structured workshops that are linked to the National Curriculum and specific programmes of study.
