Coventry Transport Museum makes the perfect learning environment for school or family visits.

Primary School Visits

A visit to Coventry Transport Museum provides a fantastic opportunity to get outside the classroom and inspire your pupils with authentic collections and exciting new displays.

We offer sessions led by experienced museum education staff or resources for your own teacher-led visit, with options for the full range of Key Stage 1 and 2, including SEN and SEBD. We know that primary teachers are looking for activities which support cross-curricular learning, so all our workshops link to multiple curriculum areas. A visit to Coventry Transport Museum not only enhances pupil engagement with core curriculum topics, but also offers enrichment by bringing students into an inspiring new learning environment.

The assembly is a great opportunity for your teachers to see what we do and how we can meet your learning aims and outcomes.  Included in the assembly is a brief introduction to all of our sites and then a focus on celebrating Coventry Firsts: pioneers, unsung heroes and fascinating facts. Delivered using a PowerPoint presentation with images, sounds and video clips.

Our offer: to book an assembly to take place before the end of March 2019 will cost £50.00.  If a class from your school books two learning sessions for the same pupils at the Herbert or Coventry Transport Museum, this cost will be discounted from their booking (applies to new bookings only and for visits taking place before the end of March 2019. Travel bursaries may also be available).

This has been made possible through the Museums & Schools programme with funding from the DFE through Arts Council England. Limited number of assemblies available to Coventry schools only.

please contact us for further details or any questions you may have.
