National Sealife Centres: Two Free Tickets For Teachers This Summer

Screen Shot 2014-07-15 at 21.10.23

Good news for teachers... throughout the summer, you can get free entry to National Sealife centres. This offer is only valid at SEA LIFE Centres & Sanctuaries in Birmingham, Brighton, Scarborough, Weymouth, Great Yarmouth, Manchester and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. All other SEA LIFE Centres and Sanctuaries are excluded.

This offer is open to practicing teaching professionals (Teachers) working in educational establishments (Schools) following Foundation, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 curriculums.

All teachers must register their details online  for their local SEA LIFE Centre or Sanctuary providing accurate data in order to receive their E-tickets.

The offer entitles you to two free tickets which you have to book online in advance, and on the day of your visit you simply need to bring your e-ticket with you (either on your phone or as a print out), along with proof of employment and teacher status. You need to arrive within the half hour allotted time slot stated when you book, but you can stay at the attraction all day if you wish.

The purpose of this freebie seems to be to help teachers plan potential school trips. To that end, you can do all sorts of event planning things while you're there, including speaking to resident experts about the school trips on offer, experience hands-on learning at the interactive rock pool, and learn about the creatures who live there, and what makes them relevant to your lesson plan. Or, you know, just enjoy a freebie day out!

    Why not open to secondary school teachers or those in Special Educational Needs?
  • Sh76
    Was also wondering why special schools are excluded, I teach KS3 pupils but they are working at a KS1 level.
  • LuschkaPP
    I think that's a really good question DJ27 & SH76. I'd recommend getting in touch with Sealife directly - perhaps contact your local centre - and see what they say! :)
  • AntlerW
    You can go if following KS1 or 2 curriculum (so special school would be fine). The resources, info and visits they offer are targeted here which seems to be why they aren't promoting to higher age groups currently.

What do you think?
