About St Albans Cathedral.

St Albans Cathedral Education Centre offers activities for students of all Key Stages and beyond. 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.

Covering a range of curriculum areas, including History, RS, Art & Design, PSHE/Citizenship, Maths, English, Science and Geography, a fascinating and thought-provoking day in this magnificent setting can provide new skills, deeper understanding and a stimulus for further study.
