Outreach Sessions

Coventry schools can choose from two outreach sessions, delivered in your classroom: Toytime (KS1) and Blitz Discovery (KS2). Both sessions are designed and delivered by our experienced Learning Officers and include hands-on museum resources. One session is designed for a maximum class size of 33 pupils. Outreach sessions are available during the COVID-19 pandemic, and additional measures have been put in place to provide a Covid-19 secure experience.

One session costs £120

Two sessions costs £180

Three sessions costs £270

The following sessions are available:


Blitz Discovery

Alternatively, you may wish to sign up to our virtual schools membership scheme where you can access multiple virtual workshops, supporting resource kits, CPD for teachers and a digital assembly. For more information please visit: 


We are currently offering a virtual alternative to our onsite school assembly. This is available to book through our brand new virtual schools scheme. You can pay £20 to access the content, which can be used across your whole school by streaming a pre-recorded assembly direct to your individual classrooms, or join as a member and it will be included in your virtual package. For more information please visit  

The assembly, aimed at KS1&2, is a great opportunity for your teachers to see what we do and how we can meet your learning aims and outcomes.  Included in the assembly is a brief introduction to all of our sites and then a focus on celebrating Coventry Firsts: pioneers, unsung heroes and fascinating facts. Delivered using a PowerPoint presentation with images, sounds and video clips. 

Please contact us for further details or any questions you may have.
