WE OFFER A VARIETY OF SCHOOLS' SESSIONS EACH FOCUSING ON A DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF THE CATHEDRAL, ITS HISTORY AND LIFE TODAY.

This magnificent Norman Cathedral with its sense of awe and wonder is the perfect environment to support work in all areas of the National Curriculum and agreed Religious Education syllabus.

You can explore the Cathedral as a church, or its role as the centre for pilgrimage to the shrines of some of the Northern Saints. Learn about monastic life in the medieval period and the impact of the Reformation to support work in History. Marvel at the architecture and study the art both in the stained glass and the intricate pattern and design the Norman stonemasons employed. The curriculum areas are endless and there is huge scope for bespoke cross curricular activities.

We also run learning sessions for schools on the Cathedral owned city centre woodlands and riverbanks. Why not combine a visit to the Cathedral and the Woodlands and Riverbanks?

We offer a number of set sessions and tours or we can tailor a visit to meet individual requirements. Click on the titles of the key stages to find out more.
