We hold a wide range of events, performances and workshops for pupils both here at The Story Museum and in your own school. Our work is inspired by our exhibitions and the way that professional story makers work and is tailored to the needs of the national curriculum.

Professional training and development for teachers includes working with partners such as Storytelling Schools and the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education to deliver high quality teacher training. Please click here for what we currently have on offer.

We regularly evaluate our projects. Find out more about what we’ve done in the past, for young people and adult learners.

We work with schools in a variety of ways and look forward to welcoming groups into the Museum. For the latest news on education workshops, activities and events, sign up to our teachers’ mailing list.
