Free workshops for schools at Fort Nelson


Fort Nelson is offering schools free workshops in a range of subjects to support the National Curriculum.

The museum’s Education team is keen to support teachers during this challenging time and local schools are being invited to book free museum visits, including exciting and engaging workshops for pupils, from now until the end of the Christmas term.

Education Officer, Katherine Webber, said: “We know it is a difficult time for schools at the moment, so we wanted to help by providing a Covid-safe education programme for free.

“Our workshops have always been very popular and Fort Nelson provides a unique environment which brings history to life.

“We have looked closely at every area of our workshops to make them Covid-safe and are liaising closely with school staff before they visit – so please get in touch if you would like to find out more about what we can offer.”

Teachers can choose from the following workshops:

• Florence Nightingale (KS1)

• The Romans are coming! (KS2)

• First World War (GCSE, KS2, KS3, KS4)

• Second World War: Protect the port! (KS2)

The Fort’s outstanding school’s programme has been modified to ensure visits and workshops are Covid-safe and in line with Government guidelines.
