St Albans Cathedral Learning Department offers an award-winning school program, with options for guided, worksheet and self-guided visits to the Cathedral, as well as virtual and outreach activities.
Covering a range of curriculum areas, they offer activities for students of all Key Stages including teaching about Romans, Saxons, Medieval, Tudors, Victorians, RE and learning about the Christian Faith, as well as Maths and Science.
Using role play, artefacts, experiential learning and the building itself, students encounter the stories and history of St Albans Cathedral and learn in new and inspiring ways through a variety of trails and workshops. A fascinating and thought-provoking day in this magnificent setting can provide new skills, deeper understanding and a stimulus for further study.

The Sandford Award is an independently judged, quality assured assessment of education programmes at heritage sites, Cathedrals and museums across the British Isles.
