Bursary Scheme

Our schools bursary scheme is now fully subscribed for the 21/22 academic year. Schools with over 30% of its current pupils eligible for free school meals can apply for our bursary for visits in the 22/23 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 or one virtual session for up to three classes. Classes must be from the same year group.

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 30% of its current pupils eligible for free school meals. 


  • Schools who have not already benefitted from a bursary funded taught session in the 22/23 academic year
