Visit Us

Let us inspire your children in their learning – come to us or we can visit you in school

As well as our many workshops on offer we can provide walks, talks, demonstrations… or you may prefer to take the self-guided option. No problem! It’s also possible to book someone to visit your school if that would better suit your needs. Session content and materials can be prepared to suit any age or stage of learning.

‘Introduction to the Museum’s Presentations’ to Use with Your Class Before a Visit, Should You Wish to

  • Primary version (Powerpoint, 12.3Mb) – due to be revised in 2021
  • Secondary version – coming soon

Please find further Museum resources for teachers on our Resources Library page.

Coach Fund

Whilst we don’t currently have a ‘Coach Fund’ this is something we hope to resurrect at some point in the near future. In the meantime it’s worth bearing in mind that some organisations offer grants to support schools’ access to learning beyond the classroom. For example schools can currently apply for a travel grant from the South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA).
