School Visits


T gifhe National Cycle Collection welcomes visits by Schools and Colleges. Primary School children find visits fascinating and are generally reluctant to leave. These visits are an ideal aid to sections of The National Curriculum. 6th form students find a wealth of technical information available, inspiring new ideas. A pupil from the acclaimed Thomas Telford School is in the process of gaining a patent for a device he invented having visited the collection.

During 2012 a successful extension programme of visits by the NCC reaching out to  schools has taken place.This has been done at a small charge by the museum to the schools involved.We have also undertaken joint activity days at Schools in Herefordshire,Powys and Shropshire together with Sustrans and NHS staff . Funding is currently being sought to expand the availability of these visits in the future and to provide a number of them at no cost to schools who have severely restricted budgets .

The museum has a formal child protection Policy and all our staff attending such school visits adhere to this policy.
