Virtual Visits

We know that it’s very difficult for schools to make physical visits currently, so we would like to come to you instead.  We have a number of virtual sessions where members of our Education Team host an interactive session with your pupils – all you need is access to Zoom and a web camera in the classroom.

Thank you so much for the session this morning. I thought it went brilliantly. The children were really engaged and feedback afterwards was very positive.
