Introduction

Learning & Outreach

The museum has a varied and flexible programme of formal and informal lifelong learning opportunities for everyone from children in Early Years to adults. We specialise in creative and hands-on learning using the building and its collections as inspiration for fun, active and memorable activities.

We ensure all our provision is of the highest quality, offers excellent value for money and is an experience for everyone to remember. We have been awarded the Heritage Education Trust's Sandford Award for Excellence in Heritage Education five times, which recognises our high standards.

Bookings can me made throughout the school year.

The Learning Service

The Learning Service has a range of hands-on sessions and resources, which we can provide in the museum or in your setting as outreach. Groups rotate around a variety of sessions led by our learning assistants and self-directed sessions. All activities are fully risk assessed.

We are a flexible service and, where possible, we can provide sessions and resources which are tailored to your needs. We are extending and developing the programme all the time and would be delighted to discuss any individual or group requirements you have. If you have a topic, we will find a way to support it!

If you would like to discuss what we can do for you, would like further information or to make a booking please call Arlene Monteith, Learning & Community Outreach Officer, on 01202 882533 or email us at museum@priest-house.co.uk.
