You can journey through the expanse of history and culture presented at these five amazing heritage sites. We offer unique atmospheres and sense of place in which to learn and enjoy.
At each site we have vibrant and flexible learning spaces that enable us to provide a wide variety of activities. Our dedicated learning team have a wealth of experience in history and heritage learning. Our offers have received external praise shown by the awards above and provide quality learning experiences. They have also been designed for a variety of age ranges. We also support the National Curriculum and other formal qualifications, for example GCSE History, by offering sessions on site interpretation and related examination board topics e.g. Crime and Punishment.
Our learning offer has been divided into 3 areas to help you decide which style fits your needs:
Led by the learning team staff each workshop has several sessions and age ranges to choose from. Choose the workshop that best fits your curriculum needs by reviewing the session details on this website.
Guided Learning Experiences
Led by the learning team staff, these guided experiences are focussed on particular topics related to the site and usually include a tour of the site. They are one hour long but times can vary. For example, at The Collection this could involve a visit to the Roman Posterngate; at Lincoln Castle it may include a bailey tour with a specific topic focus and at Gainsborough Old Hall it could outline features of the history of the building.
You may wish to lead your own visit to the site. Self-led visits are booked via the learning team as there are a variety of options to choose from. Information about lunch room booking and other site facilities are also provided.
Each of our offers has a specific learning code e.g.CM01 means Dinosaurs & Fossils at The Collection, an advisory age limit and details of the timescale.
There are example timetables on the website to give an idea of the day or part day, but we will prepare yours with you on an individual basis.
Our learning team will support your decision making. They have a wealth of experience teaching across the age ranges and can advise on the most appropriate learning experience for your needs.
