Key Stages 3 & 4

During COVID-19 we have an active virtual school programme which is closely linked to the national curriculum whilst also inspiring young people to develop as independent learners.

At the moment we are not taking bookings, even provisional ones, for group visits to the Museum. We are keeping this policy under constant review and will amend as circumstances and government advice change around social distancing.

We look forward to welcoming groups back as soon as we can.  Below you can see what we are normally able to offer.

Romans Revisited 

The observation, investigation and handling of artefacts and sources offers pupils the chance to explore Roman bathing and Roman life at this historic site. This also encourages them to make important links to their own lives today. This session allows pupils to build upon key skills, such as evaluation and interpretation, as well as encouraging them to come to well-reasoned conclusions based on analysis of evidence.
