Learning through enjoyment is the ethos at THORPE PARK Resort. Our goal is to harness students’ excitement and provide the framework to challenge and inspire them.
We are a theme park with over 30 rides and attractions to suit students of all ages. We have world class roller coasters such as The SWARM and Stealth alongside water rides and utterly unique attractions like Derren Brown's Ghost Train.
Our workshops cover a range of curriculum areas from STEM subjects to Business and Marketing. All of our workshops put the subjects into the real life running of a theme park and give students an insight into how these subjects help bring Thorpe Park to life.
We offer schools fully tailored trips with support from the Education Team from the time you esquire right through to the day of your visit - making planning and running a school trip as easy as pie.
