Summer School 2021 Update

Due to government guidance, we are operating our holiday programmes at reduced capacity this year. To allow those whose places were cancelled last year a chance of getting a space this year, we enabled priority booking and this does mean that many of the tickets we had available have now sold out.


About RZSS Summer School 

During RZSS Summer School, children discover the amazing animals, habitats and cultures of different places around the world. All of this learning happens through a range of fun activities such as zoo trails, games, arts and crafts, animal handling, building enrichment devices and much, much more!
