Generously funded by HSBC, our Inspiring Generations scheme is offering free school visits to WWT Wetland Centres for 69,500 pupils and their teachers over 5 years.

Which schools are eligible for a free visit?

This project is open to state funded schools, where 30% or more pupils on roll are eligible for school meals through qualifying benefits. Our eligible schools list is based on data provided to us by the Department for Education.

What’s included in the free visit?

Our free school visits include full day admission to our centre for pupils and accompanying adults (within ratio), plus optional guided learning session. It does not include travel costs or lunch.

When can we visit?

This offer is available during term time until March 2018, and is subject to availability. Advance booking is essential. We advise you book early to avoid disappointment. Free visit places fill up fast, especially during the summer term.

How many pupils can I bring?

Providing spaces are available, there’s no limit on the number of pupils you bring to our centre over a series of visits. Each of our guided learning sessions can hold up to 35 pupils. Our minimum numbers for sessions are 12 pupils from mainstream schools and 10 pupils from special schools.
