Inspirational visits to engage learners with the British Library's unique collections
Our programme of workshop for Primary, Secondary and FE learners encourages curiosity, creativity and exploration, enriching the curriculum and developing lifelong learning skills. We also offer self-guided visits for school groups, enabling independent exploration of our galleries and public spaces.
Over the next few months, we will be working on a refreshed programme for schools featuring exciting new workshops and onsite activities. The first phase of the new programme will launch from September, with workshops and special events being added throughout the year. Sessions currently available to book are shown here. Be sure to check back over the summer for the latest updates and additions.
Our CPD events support teachers to develop subject knowledge, reinvigorate classroom practice and rediscover a passion for their subject. Our conferences and twilight sessions feature well-respected authors, academics and educational practitioners, whilst INSET sessions enable staff teams to experience a workshop session and use it for a springboard to develop their teaching.
Our website is brimming with ideas and inspiration for the classroom, from Gothic literature to medieval history and from World War One to feminism.
