Welcome to Bradford Museums & Galleries Learning Programme. We offer a comprehensive schools workshop programme designed to complement your curriculum and in school learning.

Our sites offer unique and memorable opportunities for pupils to experience original objects, artefacts and artwork in context whilst catering for different learning styles and bringing curriculum areas to life.

From Natural History, Transport and Fossils to Evolution, British Values and the Victorians we’ve got it all collections and resources to support children’s learning across the whole curriculum. Every site offers our nationally recognised workshop, The Art & Science of Noticing, which encourages pupils to respond to the museum and gallery objects which inspire them by observational drawing and recording whilst developing their literacy skills too. We also have a new offer to explore and enrich The David Hockney Gallery in Cartwright Hall Art Gallery.

We look forward to welcoming you and your pupils at one of our venues soon.

Below you will find links to each site's learning page which list our workshops and relevant Key Stage, with associated costs, and contact details for booking.
