Education at the Dean Heritage Centre

The Dean Heritage Centre is committed to education for all and life-long learning. Central to this is use of the collection as a learning resource for all and to stimulate learning across the Curriculum.

We provide pre-booked workshops for age groups ranging from Nursery through all of the Key Stages to GNVQ and undergraduate level. Whether your visit is self-directed or part of a planned activity, each workshop can be geared to your specific needs or national curriculum requirements.

There are lots of hands-on activities for your pupils or students and we aim to stimulate and educate our young visitors in an entertaining way!

Learning packages can be tailor made to meet your school requirements. Download Booking FormDownload our Learning catalogue here. Please enquire about special discount prices for under 5's and Forest of Dean Schools.
