School Learning

Welcome to Guildford Cathedral. Come and explore the last Anglican Cathedral to be consecrated on a new site, in 1961.

What we do:

  • We welcome school children of all ages and backgrounds.
  • We are dedicated to making your visit memorable, experiential and educational.
  • We aim to provide inspiring learning experiences for all people of any age, enabling you to engage with the Cathedral and its significance in ways appropriate to you.
  • We tailor visits to meet your needs.
  • We can provide educational experiences on site on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during term-time.

Activities we offer

We offer a selection of workshops, visits and activities for pupils of all ages. Our priority is to deliver high-quality learning experiences for children in a unique and inspiring environment.

We have aligned our Religious Education offer to the National Curriculum and Diocese approved curriculum, which means that we can support the excellent work going on in schools by providing opportunities to deepen and further pupils’ understanding of aspects of Religious Education, especially the Christian faith. This also allows us to provide assessment opportunities against the curriculum to aid teachers in fulfilling their classroom data requirements.

We can also offer workshops designed to meet any other learning objective from across the range of curriculum subjects. If you’re looking for somewhere different for your pupils to use as a learning environment, do get in touch and we will arrange a visit for you covering any topic or subject you wish to cover.

Special Educational Needs Schools and Non-UK schools are also catered for with programmes designed specifically to match your needs.

Please look at our Types of Visit page to find out more about what we can offer for your pupils.
