A group of children enjoy an educational session in Woburn Safari Park's outdoor classroom

Secondary schools

At the heart of Woburn Safari Park are the twin roles of education and conservation.

A visit to Woburn Safari Park offers secondary school children a wonderful opportunity to get close to endangered species, with over 1,000 wild animal residents living in wide open parkland reserves.
