Detailed discussions and a site visit at the planning stage allow teachers to identify their learning objectives and the particular activities they would like to pursue, covering aspects of the curriculum singly or in combination – the Abbey offers considerable scope for cross-curricular studies.
We work in partnership with schools and are happy to customise worksheets, combine activities or create new programmes on topics to fit with their needs.
Visits can be part or whole day, can be led entirely by the school’s own staff and/ or by experienced teachers working at the Abbey. The Abbey offers ample space both inside and out for pupils to have a packed lunch or to “release energy”. A room in the adjacent medieval Guest House can be booked separately.
We are very excited by the versatility of the Abbey and the richness of the opportunities it offers. Please do contact us to discuss the needs of your pupils in more detail. We would be happy to meet you and show you around this wonderful building.
