SEA LIFE Manchester

SEA LIFE Manchester

SEA LIFE Manchester offers you an astonishing aquarium experience where pupils will get up close to fascinating creatures. We work closely with schools to develop information that engages and inspires young people and is relevant to the educational curriculum.  


SEA LIFE Manchester

SEA LIFE Manchester offers Self-Guided Tours and Workshops catering for early years, KS1 and KS2.  We combine active, hands-on learning with fascinating educational talks and an opportunity to have an up-close and personal view into our amazing aquatic world for your ultimate school trip! 

Early Years children can enjoy a workshop created especially for them, where the ability to identify and describe sea creatures is encouraged.  

Key stage 2 students have a range of workshops available, all relevant to the national curriculum. Choose from workshops that encourage students to think about the importance of animal welfare, or look at creatures habitats and adaptation and consider the challenges of different micro-habitats in the ocean.  

We also invite students to become Sea Defenders! In this conservation workshop they will investigate it is important to protect our oceans, raising awareness of their own relationships with the ocean and how their daily actions can positively or negatively affect the marine environment. Students should be inspired to make changes in their lifestyle and actively contribute towards solutions. 

Free lesson plans for the classroom to support the visit are available to download from our website. The Education team for SEA LIFE UK worked closely with teachers to develop both these free plans. We also offer a teacher subscription service to the SEA LIFE Hub, containing a wealth of content updated regularly for teachers to use throughout the year.
