Secondary Schools

Our stunning collection is a great way to expose students to a broad range of media: paintings, portrait miniatures, sculpture, ceramics, silver and textiles. We’re renowned for our eighteenth century paintings by such famous artists as Gainsborough, Ramsay, Stubbs, Raeburn and Zoffany. Students can broaden their knowledge and find inspiration for their own work.  We also have a programme of high profile temporary exhibitions and can offer workshops linked to these.

Please call to discuss how we might tailor a workshop to meet your requirements. We can also arrange life drawing sessions at the Museum for your students.

Our workshops can also be adapted for small groups of pupils with special educational needs, giving added emphasis to sensory experience. The Museum is fully accessible. Workshops are £100 + VAT (2 hours).

We are pleased to announce that, with our new Schools’ Bursary, we are able to offer a free workshop (worth £100) to schools in B&NES that have 20% or more of children on free school meals. This offer is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.  We hope to be able to extend this offer to other local authorities in future.
