The Education Department is able to offer tailored tours and workshops for schools to suit all students and curriculums from Key Stage 1 to A Level. The department consists of a full-time Education Officer and a team of volunteers, all DBS checked and able to work within the safeguarding policy of the Diocese of Chester.
Educational KS3, KS4 and KS5 tours and workshops are frequently tailored to match a school or college’s scheme of work across a variety of subject areas.
Chester Cathedral can be used to explore local history, as a stimulus for creative and visual arts, or to enhance classroom teaching.
Workshops we have offered at KS3 and KS4 include:
We run Annual Faith Badge mornings in conjunction with the Scout Association for Beaver and Cub Scouts. The sessions include the presentation of badges in the stunning surroundings of Chester Cathedral.
For all enquiries, or if you’d like to arrange a visit to suit the needs of your group, contact Education Officer Helen Barber. Visits can be arranged during the school day, weekends or school holidays.
