Learning about and experiencing art is at the heart of the school programme. Working alongside artists and art historians in the gallery space is a wonderful way to encourage pupils and teachers to think creatively and independently.
Our guided visits usually focus on four or five artworks enabling visitors to explore the work fully through investigation, gallery-based activities and lively discussion.
Guided tours of the permanent art collections and paying exhibitions are FREE for schools within the European Union, but must be booked with a minimum of one month’s notice. A fee of £50 (for approximately 20 people) applies for international school groups.
Time slots available for the guided visits are 10.15-11.15am, 11.30am-12.30pm, 1.15-2.15pm, and 2.30-3.30pm.
