Schools and Children


Bring your school to us

We have a number of heritage activities available to schools on day or half day visits. These activities are in line with Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 guidelines.

During 2018, we made a film, 'Back in Time,' with a local primary school.

We will come to you

Let us come into your classroom and take your pupils on a journey into the past with our interactive powerpoint. This visual-aid assembly has been developed to give primary school pupils an overview and introduction to St Helen’s and the Heritage Centre and has been trialed successfully with local primary schools.

Visit with your children

The Heritage Centre is open between 10.30am and 12.30pm on Saturdays, when refreshments are available and heritage activities and games will be available for children. Come in and explore our Heritage toybox, full of fun games and activites, or open one of our heritage activity bags in the church to find interesting quizzes and puzzles.

We hold regular family activity days which are listed on our What's On and Facebook pages.
