EDUCATIONAL VISITS FOR SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES

The Temple provides an inspiring starting point for learning. For many years it has been used by schools for teaching pupils of all age groups about local history, and about 18th Century life and art.

School sessions last two hours. Children will make a mask, learn and then act a scene from ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ or ‘Macbeth’. Sessions cost £100 per session and we can accommodate a class of up to 35 children at a time. Programmes for schools aim to encourage active learning through looking, discussion, drawing and drama. Sessions can also be tailored to cater for different age groups and for pupils with special educational needs.
