Schools on site

We’re looking forward to welcoming lots more school parties on site this week ahead of the summer holiday break.


Our gorgeous two-year-old male Sumatran tiger, Joao, is ready and waiting to greet the 15 groups totaling more than 1,000 visitors from schools, playgroups and nurseries around the Midlands who are booked in for either a workshop with our educational team in the Discovery Centre, or to just enjoy a trip to see some of our very special animals on site.

So if you’re visiting from one of the 15 booked parties, including Windsor High School in Halesowen, Southall Special School in Telford, Swanhurst School in Birmingham, Glebefields Primary School in Tipton or Rowley Hall Primary in Rowley Regis – or are just planning an independent visit to the zoo during the week – then we hope you have a fab DZG day!
