At Deep Sea World we understand how important it is to educate people about the ocean and all of the creatures on our planet. That’s why we offer a selection of educational trips tailored especially to schools, from nursery age right up to secondary school students.

Here is our Education Mission Statement:

“To deliver a unique learning experience by promoting informed and inquisitive observation within a stimulating environment.”

Come and dive to exciting new depths in our educational programmes. We want to inspire the next generation by inviting growing young minds to learn about topics such as biology, conservation, the environment, and marine life.

Each of our classes is based on the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence, and includes a selection of…

  • Structured lessons and interactive demonstrations
  • Games and quizzes
  • Topical worksheets
  • Close encounters with the creatures at our aquarium
  • Self-guided tours
