Bursary Scheme

Schools with over 35% of its pupils eligible for Pupil Premium are able apply for our bursary to cover the cost of workshops for the 24/25 academic year.

Our bursary scheme has been generously donated by a benefactor to fund Learning Sessions for those schools for whom the cost may be prohibitive.

Schools can apply for funding to cover the cost of up to three in-museum sessions. Classes must be from the same year group.

Please note, the bursary cannot be used to support visits to our paid exhibition spaces (including the Aquarium, Butterfly House and temporary exhibitions)

Funding is limited so if you would like to apply, please don’t delay.

Please check that you meet the criteria below and submit evidence with your application. Contact us if you would like to discuss your application.


  • Primary, Secondary, SEND schools and Pupil Referral Units with over 35% of its current pupils in receipt of Pupils Premium Grant.


  • Schools who have not already benefitted from a bursary funded taught session in the 24/25 academic year
