Types of School Visit

We offer school visits throughout the year on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays where possible.

School Visits are tailored to the age group of children you will be bringing and will involve an input on your specified RE subject as well as an activity to engage the children with their learning: this may be art or craft, a song or a drama activity.

Topics previously covered as part of a School Visit include:

Baptism Symbols of the Christian Faith

Features of a Church/Cathedral

Worship Peace (linked with Remembrance)

A visit to the Cathedral will also include a tour of the Cathedral to learn about the building and an opportunity to be still in the peace of our beautiful space.

Please complete a School Visit Booking Form if you would like to book a bespoke visit for your pupils. These visits can take place at any time of the year, please get in touch to discuss suitable dates. School Workshops Throughout the year we run workshops specifically designed to link specifically with RE topics from the new syllabus, as well as to engage children with Christian festivals: Advent – KS1 (November/December) linking with ‘What is the Nativity?’ Lent and Easter – Lower KS2 -(February/March/April) linking with some areas in the topics ‘Salvation’ and ‘The Big Bible Story’, as well as ‘Is communion Celebration or Remembrance?’ We are also developing our offerings outside of major festivals to include: The Trinity – Upper KS2 - linking with the topic ‘How is God 3 and one?’ Creator God – KS1 – linking with ‘Why do Christians call God Creator?’ A Special Place – EYFS – Half day workshop based on ‘What makes a place special’ ‘Creator God’ and ‘A special place’ may be booked at any time of the year.
