School Visits

We believe hands-on, immersive educational experiences enable children to learn about, develop an interest in, and truly understand topics. Groundwork have been putting this into practice, delivering high quality, engaging and informative education programmes with excellent outcomes for more than two decades.

Communication, Team Work and Self-Confidence

Our latest offer includes programmes closely linked to the history, geography and science curricula, as well as programmes designed specifically to enrich the lives and learning of your pupils. Through all of our delivery, we aim to foster an interest in learning, a connection with the world around us, and to develop essential life skills such as communication, team working and self-confidence. The programmes on offer vary from 2 hour sessions to year-long schemes. We also support schools with the integration of holistic learning approaches to their daily teaching through  staff training, school grounds development, and partnership work.

As Investors in People, we are confident our staff have the knowledge, experience and qualifications to deliver consistently high quality education activities. We are proud of our staff’s enthusiasm which bring all our subjects to life, creating unforgettable experiences for your pupils.

Truly Bringing History to Life

The living village demonstrates traditional building techniques with several houses and halls, each designed to give pupils first-hand understanding of Anglo-Saxon life with artefacts, decoration and activities to explore.

The demonstration farm is home to several rare breeds, and exhibits Anglo-Saxon farming techniques and day-to-day life. Vegetable and herb gardens compliment the livestock farming.

The museum, accompanied by St Paul’s Church, provides unrivalled opportunities to discover how St Bede lived, worked, and contributed to Anglo-Saxon society and British history.
