Secondary school sessions

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are taking school bookings from the beginning of June 2021 and look forward to welcoming and inspiring your students. Each visit involves a workshop led by a member of museum staff followed by a self-led tour of the museum gallery. The cost is £3 per child plus VAT where applicable. We can also offer virtual tours and workshops, Discovery Boxes full of artefacts and resources that you can borrow for your classrooms, free classroom-based sessions and more. Contact learning@bhmm.org.uk to discuss your requirements further.

Our secondary school session, ‘Biggin Hill: Engineering the Battle of Britain – a STEM based enquiry’ is designed for KS3 students.

The session involves object handling and enquiry-based activities. Additionally, students will be self-guided around the museum with the school discovery tablet. They will learn about the real people based at Biggin Hill, watch interviews of people telling their own stories, find objects and images in the museum, and participate in activities and quizzes.
