Organisations that provide free visits into classrooms.

  1. Hello,

    Anyone else wanted the opposite of a school trip; where someone from the museum, organisation, etc visit the classroom, preferably without charge.

    I think the adage "You get what you pay for" generally applies here, though.
    We have plenty of outside groups come into the school and present a day of activities to various year groups - Romans, Mediæval people, Visiting musicians and so forth - but they all charge.
    I personally think they are worth it as the children get to see and do some wonderful things.
    The only ones who are free are the book sellers who set up stalls (and occasional famous authors) on World Book Day and fleece the children for books they probably won't ever read!
  3. out of date but thought i should add that chester zoo do an animal ranger!
  4. Sorry for reawakening an old thread Dogs Trust also do completely free visits to schools. No catch, or fundraising required.

    You can find out more on their website www.learnwithdogstrust.org.uk.
