Did you know that we are an Arts Mark Organisation?

If you are looking to work with a heritage site in support of your Arts Mark Award please get in contact to see how we can work together. Or if you are not doing your Arts Mark award but would still like to bring your pupils to engage with the site and our stories – we host school visits between April to December Monday to Wednesday.

Our main programme is still in development but we have lots of FREE pilot sessions for schools at the moment, covering a range of cross-curricular subjects including History, English, Science and Maths. We currently have COVID risk assessments in place for all sessions and onsite we can accommodate one class per visit.

Onsite pilots – please click on the links for further information

There is funding available to cover travel costs

The below session ‘Earth, Space & Dance’ can either be delivered in your school or digitally (live streamed into the classroom)

Earth, Space & Dance, KS2

We are taking bookings for Autumn 2021 and we can cover the travel costs for up to 4 schools on a first come first serve basis.  

As it is now nearly the end of term, you can send me just an expression of interest for us to confirm the booking when the Autumn school term begins. Or we can confirm the booking before the summer term ends.

Please feel free to ask any questions
