What We Offer Visiting Schools:
Our Learning Team has developed a dedicated programme for school visits, which includes differentiated teacher resources and risk assessments to help you get the most from the experience. We offer three types of school visits:
Flexi Tours: You can independently lead your class through a journey of 90 minutes of hypnotic visuals and a dazzling score.
Guided Tours: Classes are supported by a dedicated Learning Assistant, guiding you through the galleries, prompting discussion, and encouraging creative play in response to the content. These take place on specific dates throughout the year when the galleries are closed to the public.
Relaxed Sessions: Specifically for SEND groups, where we adjust the volume and lighting in the galleries and build a sensory room with a dark tent, and offer additional SEN resources. BSL and Audio Described Tours are also available.
