Discovery and Learning Packages


Red Panda

Discover our new learning packages and mix and match virtual sessions that, combined with a self-led visit, create the perfect blend of learning for your class.

Once you’ve chosen your combination, if you have a self-led visit and a virtual tour, you’ll get £1 off per pupil!

You can also book your self-led visit anytime during the year.

After booking, you’ll receive a link to tailor-made, interactive resources that you can use with your class before and after your sessions and visit.

This blended learning approach is designed to enable you to book a series of sessions and workshops, a visit, and access resources for each topic in the classroom, layering the learning up throughout the year.

Cover the curriculum remotely, virtually with us, and on-site via a range of technology and have your own assigned education officer to maximise your class’s learning and engagement. Your assigned team member will be able to follow your learning journey throughout your mix and match activities, provide feedback on class work and ensure all your class’s needs are fully met.
