School Workshops and Outreach Programmes

Bring the school trip to your classroom

Curriculum linked school workshops are available for a wide range of subjects. The cost of a school trip is not insignificant. As schools tighten their belts and parents are more reluctant to sign those all important permission slips, venues are adapting to give you the opportunity to host a workshop visit from them. Outreach workshops benefit schools and children who cannot afford the time or expense of a traditional school trip, by developing ways for you to bring their knowledge and expertise into your classroom.

Lasting anywhere from an hour to a full day, skillful education teams can deliver exciting and engaging workshops. A few of our favourites include science laboratory experiment workshops, a round house in the playground, and Skype a viking! The benefits associated with school workshop visits include not having to arrange and pay for transport, the children not having to bring along a packed lunch, and no need for risk assessments! You could even team up with another nearby school to reduce the cost further.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect workshop to visit your school.

School Science Workshops

Looking to fire the imaginations of your students during science lessons? A school science workshop can bring hands-on learning and expert-led demonstrations into the classroom. Between them, the workshop providers listed below can offer physics, chemistry and biology, at every key stage. The feedback we have received from school teachers who have booked a science workshop is consistently oozing praise - their pupils are so engaged and inspired.

School History Workshops

Getting school children to really understand and get enthusiastic about events and periods in history can be difficult, especially at Key Stage 1 and 2. Trips to visit museums or stately homes can really help, but not all schools can afford the time or expence, especially if they do not have anything suitable close to the school. Outreach workshops really come into their own by bringing history into the classroom in an engagine and inspiring way.
