We offer tailored workshops for children with Special Educational Needs and Special Schools.

We can visit your school with a suitcase of Second World War objects, or you can visit us. All staff have been trained to engage with children with Special Educational Needs. Workshops are varied and adaptable to suit different learning styles.

We offer a wide range of workshops and activities including free craft packs, loan boxes, virtual workshops, and online learning resources.

As a charity we're pleased to offer a Travel Grant of up to £200 per school to assist with transport costs to the museum. Download our Travel Grant Form.
