Planning a school or college visit

Whether you'd like to do a workshop led by our staff or just bring your class to one of our sites planning a school visit can be an effort, so we want to make it as easy for you as possible. In this section you can find out about booking your trip, see a range of activities that can be used in the classroom either before or after your visit, download risk guidelines and see which workshop would suit your class best.

We have activities and workshops suitable for students of all ages, from the youngest children right up to young people in further education. Use the menu on the left to find out more. So that our museums don't get overcrowded it is essential that schools and other groups book in advance for both workshops and teacher-led visits.

"I would  just like to say how great I thought you were leading the workshop. Despite how well behaved the children were they are not an easy class and have a lot of challenges. You really engaged them and we got some brilliant pieces of writing following the trip. I will definitely be recommending it or come again myself should we repeat the topic."
Jon Brailey, Teacher, Whiteways Primary School
