School Workshops - Education Group

Home / School Workshops

Please note: Outreach Workshops only - We visit your school! We can visit schools in All UK Regions

Education Group is the leading school workshop company. We have been delivering our own workshops for over 20 years, across the UK, as well as in the USA and Australia.

We develop our own workshops in conjunction with experts from music, dance, art, science and history. They are aligned to key targets within the National Curriculum to bring the subjects to life for the children. We train and equip our own facilitators who are professionals in their field, often actors, musicians and performers from the top colleges.

The workshops consistently receive outstanding feedback from teachers and children. As the workshops are fully interactive, they are always memorable and great fun. We listen to feedback to continuously improve and develop new workshops to meet the needs of schools, such as Maypole dancing and Stone Age life, both introduced this summer.

Our workshops complement many special celebration events. For example African drumming is suitable for Black History Month, bauble making at Christmas.

Our workshops cost from as little as £1.50 per child. We work with up to eight classes in a day and deliver workshops in around 50 schools a day: millions of children have been delighted and inspired by an Education Group workshop.
