Our free and bookable study days are designed for you and your students aged 14 to 19 and linked to Key Stages in their learning. You’ll explore galleries, join in discussions and creative workshops, and more.

We can usually accommodate groups of 20 to 30 students, accompanied by school/college staff at a ratio of 1:10. Students will have space to work alone or in groups, seated or standing.

Due to the small scale of our free programme, schools in the Greater London area have priority until 12 December. From this date booking is open to schools outside Greater London.

Our ongoing commitment is to make our building, services and programme as accessible and inclusive as possible, removing and reducing barriers to visiting us. Find access information here.
