"The pupils said that the Raystede visit was the best activity they did during their course. They have learnt a lot about standards of care and have implemented a new welfare code back at the school" Year 9 teacher headstart school
"I thoroughly enjoyed the day and the children loved it too. The pre-visit was extremely helpful and the day turned out to be stress free, which was fantastic! We will definitely visit again next year." Year 4 teacher tollgate community school
Thank you so much for your visit to our school! The activities were great and the education staff were fantastic with the children. Class Teacher, Burwash Primary School
The visit was outstanding in every respect. The staff were well informed and they targeted their language and activities at just the right level for the children’s understanding. Group Leader, St Mary’s Children’s’ trust
I particularly found having the garden and Yurt to ourselves useful. It meant we had somewhere to leave our belongings and a place where the children felt safe. Class teacher, Mark Cross Primary School
We loved our day at Raystede, especially doing the pooper scooper race! We learnt lots of things, such as how to look after dogs, cats and small animals properly and how to hold and care for chickens. We thought the big turkey was very funny! Pupils of Five Ashes CE primary School
Thank you for letting us have a look at all the animals at Raystede. The cats and the rabbits were lovely as well. I learnt that a chick hatches in 21 days. Pupil from East Hoathly School
Thank you very much! The visit was wonderful and engaged and excited the children fully. We have many fond memories as a class to share with each other, the school community and the parents. Class Teacher, Annecy primary school
Just a wonderful day! The staff were brilliant with the children, they are asking if they can come back already! Can’t praise Raystede Enough! Group leader, Grove Park Special school
We only wish we had had more time to visit as we could have quite happily stayed all day. School Teacher, Hove Park Secondary school
