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.
