The Grant Museum of Zoology is a natural history museum established by Robert Edmond Grant in 1828 as a teaching collection of zoological specimens and material for dissection. It is one of the oldest natural history collections in the UK, and is the last remaining university natural history museum in London.
KYTOS is pleased to announce our latest Biology trip:
Grant Museum of Zoology, UCL, London
Wednesday 18th March 2020
The visit will last for 1 hour 30 minutes, and Tormead students will have exclusive use of the facilities. The museum is packed full of skeletons, mounted animals and specimens preserved in fluid. Many of the species are now sadly extinct, including the Tasmanian Tiger or Thylacine, the Quagga, and the Dodo.
We will be leaving school at 8.25am and returning at approximately 2.00pm on the day. If you wish to attend, please provisionally sign up using the form on this site. Letters will then be sent electronically to parents/guardians of the first 30 students who apply. This must be signed and returned by the specified date. The approximate cost of the trip will be £14.50, to be added to your bill.
