Schools & Education
We are very pleased to announce that we have now achieved the Learning Outside the Classroom Award, which denotes that we have reached the Quality Badge status in delivering our educational programme.
During the last few months we have devised new theme/interactive based days for our education programme provided at the museum, which we deliver to local schools and these are proving very popular.
The programmes cover various topics from Buildings through to A Victorian Christmas and can be delivered as a full day programme to include lunch or on a pick and mix basis of two-hour sessions.
The museum has the necessary policies and procedures in place including health & safety, equality, safeguarding etc. and all policies are reviewed on a regular basis. Copies available if required.
The museum has the appropriate public liability insurance and a copy of The Helena Thompson Museum Risk Assessment is available.
Below we have set out details of the programmes available together with a link to an application form.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact The Helena Thompson Museum.
