Visit with your school
St Paul's is an inspiring place to learn for students of all ages. From hands-on history classes that explore Cathedral life during World War II, to thought-provoking sessions that ask big questions about ethics and religion, we are sure you will be able to find the perfect visit for your group.
Our experienced Schools and Family Learning team lead interactive cross-curricular guided visits for all ages, across all the key stages.
We offer a variety of themed learning sessions, workshops, self-guided trails and live virtual visits. We can offer inspirational sessions across curriculum subjects for:
- all key stages
- GCSE exam preparation
- college groups
- home school groups
- SEND students.
Come and explore St Paul’s Cathedral with your own dedicated and knowledgeable member of the Schools and Family Learning team. We can tailor our curriculum-focussed sessions to ensure that it engages your students and supports your work back in the classroom.
A guided tour gives you access to everything from handling objects and taking part in fun activities, to exploring behind the scenes of the Cathedral.
If you are unable to visit us in person, why not join us on a virtual visit? Our dedicated team will ensure that your students are fully engaged with lots of unique digital resources which have been tailor-made for remote sessions.
Do you want to explore St Paul’s at your own pace?
By booking a self-guided visit, we can offer your group lots of pre-visit advice and guidance, as well as subject-specific trail leaflets. This option is ideal if you are limited on time or do not have specific curriculum aims.
