Plan Your Visit

To get the best out of your day we recommend that you take part in a Learning Officer led session. We can adapt your session to ensure your learning outcomes are achieved, and with 8 sessions to choose from you will be spoilt for choice.

All our sessions support the Arts Award framework at all levels, however we also deliver a highly successful Discover in a Day. So why not accredit your sessions with us through Discover Arts Award at just £6 a head. We will plan and deliver a day of activity and then moderate the course, sending out certificates to the successful pupils, (we are happy to say we have a 100% pass rate).

For a limited time only we have funding from the DfE and Arts Council England to support your visit with a travel bursary up to £200. For more details please contact Nicky McIntosh on 0247 6237523.
