We’re on a mission to enthuse students of all ages about the wonders of the invertebrate world. Together with our learning partners, we have developed a year-long programme of inspirational free sessions taking place across the eight Royal Parks.

Join our mission to discover the incredible hidden world of invertebrates. All sessions are mapped to the National Curriculum and are led by a team of experienced environmental educators. Whatever the weather, our educational spaces are practical all year round. These sessions will focus on what an invertebrate is, and their form and function.


During Spring term 2018, Mission: Invertebrate sessions are completely free. From Monday 16 April onwards, schools will receive a discount on all Mission: Invertebrate sessions. Mission: Invertebrate sessions are available for SEND groups, KS1 & 2, KS3 & 4, and 16+. Please note, places are limited to:

  • Non-fee paying schools only
  • One session per school

  • All teaching resources are provided so you don’t need to bring any with you.
  • Please ensure that you check the weather forecast before your visit so that students are wearing appropriate clothing for the activities.
