Schools' Outreach Programme: Spring 2018 onwards

While the museum is closed we will be offering object-based outreach sessions for schools. We are currently consulting with teachers on what this offer should look like. To have your say and to help shape the outreach programme please complete our short outreach consultation survey: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/geffryeoutreach
