We warmly welcome school visits and can provide a range of activities covering a wide range of topics across the curriculum and key stages. Here are some suggestions:
Our Education Officer, The Reverend Lesley McCreadie, is available to offer advice and guidance to teachers wishing to bring parties of children to visit the Abbey so please contact to discuss all possibilities. The average length of stay of course varies according to age and the theme being pursued and visits can often be combined with trips to other sites in Sherborne; the old and new castles and our medieval Almshouse, for example.
Our Education Officer is also available to come into schools to run workshops, follow up lessons and so on.
There is no charge to schools for visiting The Abbey.
