Axe valley education

Welcome to Axe Valley Education!

Here at the park we welcome any school or pre-school visits and will arrange sessions to fit in with your school topic. For example, habitats, nocturnal and flight.

We have a dedicated Education Station (room!) that you will have full use of. Note, if you choose to book your trip on a Monday, you will have the park to yourselves!

We encourage one teacher to come for a pre-visit free of charge!
