Museums and Schools

We are involved in an exciting partnership with the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, to help Primary school teachers to arrange more museum visits, and bring the curriculum to life for their groups.

Using funding from the Arts Council and the Department for Education, we are working to increase the number of primary schools taking part in high quality educational visits to museums in Coventry.

By encouraging schools to get pupils out of the classroom and into museums, together we will spark young people’s curiosity and encourage a lifelong passion for culture and learning.

Please click here to download a risk assessment form.

Please note that all schools must book before their visit.

Any school that visits without booking will be required to pay an admission price of £7 per child and £10.50 for adults.

Please note there is a 33% charge for cancellations within one month of the visit and 100% charge for a cancellation on the day, except for circumstances beyond your control.
