10. Visits to Foxdenton Hall can also be arranged by the Society

11. Other topics may be available if sufficient prior notification is given

 

=========================================

 Whilst the approach to each topic may vary, many commence with an introductory illustrated talk, often by use of a 'Powerpoint' presentation. Whenever possible, appropriate artefacts are brought along for children to see, and even handle. Each session normally contains worksheets for the children to complete and/or suggested follow-up material.

 As the Society is a Registered Charity [Charity Number 1003804] relying on contributions to enable it to carry out its aims and objectives, a fee of £25 is chargeable for each school session, which lasts approximately 1½ hours.

 Schools wishing to avail themselves of the above service should complete the Educational Request Form below and return it by email, at least three weeks before the required date to:
