Bring your class to learn about a variety of different wildlife topics!

Tadorna Tours offers a unique and fantastic experience for your class at the Parc Slip nature reserve. Join us for a school session focusing on a range of topics about wildlife, habitats and how your pupils can help nature.
We also specialise in SEN and AN school sessions, please contact us to arrange your session.

Sample Session

  • ARRIVAL
    We’ll greet you on arrival, introduce ourselves and where you can leave your bags, before settling into your session.

  • SCHOOL SESSION
    Your session will begin directly after we drop off your bags. Sessions typically start around 10am and will last for your desired amount of time (2 hour sessions are most popular). If you have booked a self-guided visit, we will give our talk at this time before dropping off desired resources and a map of the reserve.

  • SNACK TIME AND LUNCH TIME
    There will be a provided space for you to have your lunch or snack time (often requested by pre-school and SEN), there is also a café on site for additional snacks and drinks.

  • SELF-GUIDED AND FREE-TO-ROAM TIME
    After your session has finished and you’ve had your lunch, you are free to roam the reserve or utilise our resources for a self-guided session. We can assist with areas that will help in your school topics, or just enjoy yourself on the reserve!
