The Lightbox has a long history of working with schools so that your students can experience the world beyond the classroom. The experience of learning outside the classroom for Key stages 1 and 2 can help to make subjects more vivid and interesting for students and enhance their understanding.  It can also improve confidence, knowledge and investigation skills, whatever their age or ability.

We offer various activity sessions that can be adapted for different age groups and can be linked to the National Curriculum if required. Some of the topics available are outlined below, but we are also able to work with schools to develop bespoke sessions that meet your classroom topic requirements.

Art sessions

Heritage sessions

Cost per session: £120 +VAT

Advanced booking is essential for all school groups, including self-guided tours. Visiting groups who wish to have facilitated activity sessions must book at least two months in advance of their visit. In order to ensure an enjoyable visit, there is a maximum class size of up to 30 children per activity session and up to two sessions can be run simultaneously.
