Schools, Colleges and Universities

We love having young creative minds in the Gallery exploring our exhibitions and discovering our collection.

Due to closures relating to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus), we will now only be able to book school visits for the new school year, starting in September 2020.

At this stage, we cannot be sure what exhibition will be on display at this time.

If you have any queries relating to bookings that you have already made, please contact our Learning Co-ordinators Alex Bogard (+44 (0)1243 770812) for primary school enquiries or Holly Riddle (+44 (0) 01243 770826) for secondary school enquiries.


Whether you’re looking to inspire a young person to begin their artistic career or searching for new ways to look at other curriculum areas, we’re here to help.

Come along for a free visit or pay a little extra to have a guided visit or workshop.

Thank you for organising such a fantastic day for us, the children gained so much from their visit, we hope to be back again!

We currently offer three visit formats and a combined visit for you to choose from:
