Key Stage 3 & 4
The Education Department is pleased to welcome secondary school groups to the Museum and regularly works with teachers to develop bespoke workshops. Due to the Museum's size, it is an ideal place to visit with small groups (such as SEN or G&T groups) and is a fascinating place for GCSE students to explore.
During any visit, pupils will see how Soane designed his house to show space, light and invention manipulated in the skillful hands of the architect. Pupils experience this 'Academy for Architecture' frozen in time, as Soane intended.
A visit to the Museum can focus on a wide range of themes and subjects:
Early Nineteenth Century
Structures and Forces (Domes)
Shape and Pattern
ART & DESIGN
Drawing the Collection and Museum
A tour of the Museum lasts 2 hours.
Whole-day visits (10:00am-2:30pm) can be arranged to involve work around the Museum (including drawing and note-taking) and activities in the Education Space.
To book a session for KS3 or 4 pupils, please contact Claire Kirk, telephone 020 7440 4254.
Self-guided visits for older pupils (KS4+) can be arranged but students do tend to get more out of their visit if it is facilitated. All self-guided groups (of over 6 people) do have to book in advance. To book a self-guided visit, go to the Group Bookings page
