Our Secondary school programmes are designed to create opportunities and advance personal development for students.  Museums support the needs of students with different learning styles and gives them the opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience of working in the creative industries. Studies have shown that students who participate in museum visits achieve higher marks for their assessed work post-visit. 

We offer various 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.

Advanced booking is essential for all school groups, including self-guided tours. Visiting groups who wish to have Lightbox-led 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 30 children per activity session and up to two sessions can be run simultaneously.

If you would like to discuss booking any of these sessions then please contact our Schools Programme Coordinator, Emily Watkins, at [email protected] or phone 01483 737807.
