About The Auckland Project

The Auckland Project Learning and Skills department is designed to be an extension for any nursery, primary or secondary school, giving teachers from the home establishment access to fantastic resources to enhance their subject delivery.

They have developed strong links with schools covering subjects in History, Art, Geography, Religious Education and Creative Writing, and currently they are developing links with Spanish. By combining key stage 3 and 4 curriculum into their historic sites and galleries, they inspire young people to learn about their local heritage, and possible career openings for the future.
