School workshops are  run by Miranda Mitchell, a  freelance  Education Officer who has worked closely with Horsham Museum over a number of years to tell, explain and explore fascinating stories.. The workshops offer talks and handling sessions with a selection of high historical value items enabling greater interaction between the objects and students .

A visit from the education officer will bring history to life, capturing the children's imagination.  A detailed description of the Discover and Explore services is enclosed.

Workshops can be cross-curricular and range from those designed for early years/reception through to Key Stage 4.

Workshops can be held either at your own premises or, if you wish to increase the benefit to your students, at the Museum when a walking tour of the museum can be included.
