Schools Programme...

Set within a beautiful park, Brampton Museum is small and friendly with superb collections. We offer a wide range of hands on educational opportunities for schools led by professional museum educators

The museum and park are very accessible and have been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.

Our current list of workshop themes for schools is as follows:-

 Key Stage 1

  • Toys from the Past
  • Seaside Holidays
  • Florence Nightingale
  • Then and Now (available as 1.5hr workshop)
  • Victorian Christmas (available throughout November and December)

Key Stage 2

  • World War 2
  • Roman Newcastle
  • Victorian Christmas (available throughout November and December)

Each of these themes can create a day-long visit to our museum with children participating in two workshops.  Alternatively you can join us for just a morning or afternoon session and take part in one workshop.

Further details about the session content can be found in the e-brochure below.  Alison Tinning, the Education Officer is more than happy to discuss your specific requirements either by phone or you may like to visit the museum and meet with her before you bring your school group.

Admission to the museum is free. The charges for the school workshops are as follows:-

Price per pupil (accompanying adults free):

Full day (2 x 1.5 hour workshops) - £5 per pupil (minimum £95)

Half day (1 x 1.5 hour workshop) - £3 per pupil (minimum £50)

Roman Newcastle workshops full day (2 x 1.5 hour workshops) - £6.50 per pupil (minimum £100)

Booking is easy, just call or email the museum with your choice of session and preferred dates.  We will arrange the session and then email a booking confirmation, along with additional workshop information and a copy of our risk assessment.

When you book your school workshops with us we will ask you about any pupil special needs or access requirements that we need to be aware of so we can give your pupils the best possible experience during their time in our museum.
