ACS Partnerships

Bringing exciting educational opportunity to all children

ACS Partnerships aims to increase collaboration, share expertise and good practice, widen educational opportunities and raise standards in key subjects.


By working together we can raise the standards of teaching and learning through innovative, relevant and accessible initiatives, filling the gaps in mainstream services that have a positive impact on the education of the children in all partnership schools.

Thorpe Park

4th October 2022

We have taken over the entire park for the day to celebrate STEAM education with our wider community.  There are 10,000 free tickets available for state school students in the UK.

We launched the tickets at 9am on Monday 9th May.  All tickets were booked within the hour.  If you would like to attend please do email partnerships@acs-schools.com to be added to the waiting list.

Educational activities throughout the park

Throughout the park we will station educational STEAM related activities from partner organisations.  Students can take part in these activities, see exhibits and watch shows.  Partner organisations include The Royal Philharmonic, the RAF, Satro, Vex Robotics, Science Made Simple and much more.

Thorpe Park facilities and rides

All the park rides, restaurants and other facilities will be open as normal, just for us.  The difference is that participants will only be allowed on the rides if they can produce evidence of learning from either the pre-event activities online (September), or from live activities on the day.

 

Gamifying education at the event

Whilst Thorpe Park is a fun exciting day out, we want to make sure that the event is highly educational too.  Students will therefore only be able to access the rollercoasters and larger rides by showing evidence of learning collected from our various partner organisations at the park.

Capture Learning

All activities will be listed alongside their national curriculum topic coverage, allowing teachers to show evidence of learning which is specific to the taught curriculum.  Don't miss a day in school to come to our event - this is school.

 

Educational Programme

Fun, Free and Educational

We have partnered with industry, charities and universities to bring the participants the most exciting and educational experiences.  Once you have secured your park ticket for the day, you can plan your trip and book tickets for many of the attractions.  No queueing - an allocated timeslot for your students. We will open an Eventbrite booking site in September for individual activity bookings.
