English & Literacy

school trips

Curriculum Subject
From Spelling and Grammar to Saxons & Shakespeare

Literacy is arguably the most important part of our National Curriculum. A good working knowledge and understanding of our first language is critical before we can really begin to explore other areas of the curriculum. A child who struggles with comprehension and communication will not understand what they are being taught in other subject areas, or will find it difficult to explain their answers. They could be naturally gifted for a subject like science, but if without good reading, writing, speaking or listening skills, they are going to be held back.

Clearly the classroom is a great place to teach basic literacy, but the benefits of a school trip, especially once they start to nurture their understanding of the history of language, should not be overlooked. The obvious destination for a school trip with a focus on English Language is the birth place of William Shakespeare; Stratford upon Avon. Also below you will also find inspiration from our other destinations which cover different periods in history, from the Anglo Saxon influence, through to the modern day. If you are looking for a school visit desination that offers high quality educational value for your English trip, you will find it here. Our trips and workshops cater for topics relating to SpaG, Stories and Folktalkes, Theatre and Film and much more.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect place for your school trip.

Madame Tussauds London



Empower young people with the essential skills they need in their day-to-day lives. Students will gain an invaluable insight into the media by exploring its purpose, audience and influence – from the modern-day selfie to the concept of fake news.

We appreciate the importance of educating children to protect their online identities and well-being, to support them in identifying ‘fake news’ and in improving their general digital and media literacy. Madame Tussauds London provides an inspirational and innovative way of approaching this topic by providing a two-fold opportunity for children to explore: i. the representation of celebrity in our media and our reactions to these representations. ii. the way people interact with celebrity culture and the modern media ( the Selfie, Snapchat, Instragram and YouTube Vlogging generation). The learning begins in your own classroom with our free to download pre- and post-visit lesson plans. Offering three hour-long lessons, students will explore what we mean by the term 'bias',...
