We have implemented the following to ensure we are COVID safe:
- All headsets are cleaned at the start and end of each day, including in between year groups.
- Social distancing is maintained at all times
- All PrimeVR team members are double jabbed and will wear a face mask whilst on site (if requested by the school)
- You can make a provisional booking without any cancellation fees*
Our workshops are COVID safe and are a fantastic way of taking children on school trips, without leaving the classroom. Please enquire about our detailed risk assessment and we'll be more than happy to send you a copy.
*Cancellation must be due to COVID-19
We cover the following topics using VR:
Space, Mayans, Wonders of the World, Polar Regions, Mount Everest, The Americas, Animals, The Respiratory System and Around the World.
Curriculum topics available: Creative writing.
At PrimeVR, we understand how difficult it can be to inspire children with their writing. We aim to create excitement by virtually transporting pupils into space! Not only will we provide your class with exciting facts about space but we'll also provide them with an experience to ignite their imagination. Give VR a go and see how it helps with creative writing!
Following on from our workshop, you can download our literacy lesson pack, which encourages children to write about what they have seen and learned about in space. Each lesson pack includes an instruction sheet, model text and writing checklist (relevant to LKS2 or UKS2).
Curriculum topics available: Earth and space.
PrimeVR can bring your science topic to life by blasting your pupils into space! Using virtual reality headsets, we'll introduce your class to the different planets in our Solar System, their respective sizes, the Milky Way Galaxy and we'll even step onboard the International Space Station!
We can deliver a maximum of six workshops throughout the school day with a maximum of 32 pupils in each workshop.
We bring in 16 headsets and pupils will share one between two during workshops.
We recommend workshops lasting between 30-45 minutes.
Please get in touch if you have any specific questions regarding accessing our VR headsets.
Yes. We've worked with a number of SEN schools and the response/feedback to VR has been fantastic.

If you are new to VR and you’re unsure about how it works in the classroom, check out our 5* reviews from teachers on Google, Trustpilot and Facebook.
"We had a really enjoyable day of VR for Years 3-6. The day was very well organised and delivered, and the children really enjoyed the sessions.
During the session the children got a good balance of VR (using the headset) and factual information about each topic (we had Stone Age, The Americas, Outer Space and Polar Regions). I think it's good value for money as a 'hook' to start a new topic. Overall
a super day"
"We’ve had a fantastic time with Prime VR's VR workshops this week, a great addition to our STEM week! We'd like to say a massive thank you to Louie, who made the workshops such a hit with the kids. As teachers, we were really impressed with the knowledge and information he was able to provide to the children to enhance the VR content, and the opportunity it gave us to assess their prior learning."
Virtual Reality is changing the way we teach topics like science and history. We interview the UKs leading VR school workshop company.
