The Specialists

Children in Victorian times School Visit


Tudor School Visits


Egyptians School Visit

The Specialists have been booked by many schools across the Midlands to deliver our well-established History school visits - days planned by Greg (a qualified and experienced primary teacher) to help deliver curriculum objectives.


Our school workshops involve one or two practitioners to come into school for the day to work with groups of children in costume and in role, handling replica artefacts.


For our full day rate (£265.00 from Autumn 2018), plus mileage at 55p per mile, the cost for Leicestershire schools is typically under £280.00 (please see our T & C's) – substantially cheaper than taking children out of school and no time is wasted sitting on a bus!  In fact, on average, there is at least two hours more educational content in our day when compared to most museum visits.


We can work with several classes throughout the day to spread the cost further and guarantee a truly outstanding day of learning in school.

We offer a range of pricing options to schools within one hour's drive of our base.  Full day visits begin around 9.00am and usually finish at  3.00pm.  They are busy days, packed with learning!  We recommend booking dates early as our service is usually fully booked for the term within a few weeks of its commencement if not before.
