How we work with schools

We are working in partnership with three of our local primary schools.

School bookings are open and we look forward to welcoming you on a self-led visit.

Three children playing together

Our associate schools programme

We are working with partner schools in Hackney and Tower Hamlets including

  • Sebright Primary School

  • Queensbridge Primary School

  • St Paul's with St Michael's Primary School

Over three years we are exploring creative learning ideas with the children. We are following their progress from Year 4 through to Year 6.

2020-21: Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland was our first creative project with our partner schools, for the academic year 2020-2021.

The children considered their hopes for Hackney in the future.

Impacts of the project

For children we hope they will...

  • feel the Museum is a welcoming place
  • visit outside of school hours
  • know the Museum is an interesting resource in their local community
  • understand more about the concept of home in different times and places and how to connect their own experiences of home to those of others
  • investigate the broader concept of home to include their local area and community
  • explore new study skills that enhance their curriculum
  • work with professional artists to produce creative work that expresses their ideas about home
  • present their work as part of the Museum's public programme and give voice to their perspectives
  • feel recognised and valued in their community

For the Museum, we want to learn more about children as co-creators and a valuable partners.

Our sessions for schools

We are open for school visits. To plan your visit please get in touch with our bookings team.

School visits

We are working with local schools to develop and pilot new sessions for primary age children and self-guided visits. We will then offer a range of curriculum-linked sessions for all schools.
