Key Stages 3 & 4

“When I came in the stained glass window shone when the sun streamed through it, and it made everything bright and beautiful and shiny, and it made me feel safe and happy and very enchanted.”

Each visit to Dorchester Abbey will be tailored to the specific requirements of the teachers and to the age and ability of the pupils.

For Key Stages 3 & 4 the Abbey offers many opportunities to explore, experience and discuss themes from the History, RE and Citizenship programmes, and the locality provides Geographical investigation and the link between location and settlement. The award-winning Cloister Gallery tells the story of the Abbey and its former monastic buildings through a collection of medieval stonework, offering both an artistic display and an academic study.
