 Schools



We have a menu of curriculum based workshops for you to choose from, or we can work with you to create a tailored package for the specific needs of your students. These have been developed through extensive teacher consultation and meet the 2014 National Curriculum and Exam Board Specifications. Our programmes offer experiential, multi-sensory, interactive and creative experiences that can bring learning to life for your students. We have creative spaces for you to work in at every site and can help you with Health and Safety - download our Health & Safety guidance from the planning a visit section. You can even build on your visit back in the classroom with objects from Artemis, the school object loans service.

Can’t come to us? Look up the Discovery Centre workshops. We can run any of these at the Discovery Centre or as outreach in your school or setting.

How much will it cost? All of our sites have free entry to Leeds LEA and SEN schools - so self-led visits are free of charge. We charge a £1 per pupil entrance charge for non-Leeds schools (including Academies) at Abbey House, Armley Mills, Thwaite Mills, Temple Newsam House and Lotherton Hall (includes entrance to Bird Garden).

We believe every child should be able to access cultural education and cost should not be a barrier. From 1st April 2015, our workshop charges, for one class (either on site or as outreach), are £60 for a two-hour workshop and £120 for a full day workshop.
