Book a Place

Places are limited and we ask that schools limit their group size to around 15 in order for us to offer the opportunity to as many different schools as possible. We will offer places on a first come, first served basis and the deadline for registering your interest is Monday 4 May.

We offer travel bursaries to help cover the cost of transport for schools. More information can be found on our support for schools webpages.
