Our Service

We are full time education professionals, working in schools, museums and with home schoolers.  Our school visit service is second to none.  We are the leaders in our field, offering a complete range of educational sessions, planned and delivered to the highest of standards.  Other providers have played catch up, scrambling to design teacher led sessions which we have been offering for nearly fifteen years.  This practice of keeping all children busy with sessions (no gaps for one group when they are waiting for their turn) is now the industry standard – invented by The Specialists!  Please view our Testimonials to see how highly our visits are valued.  Our sessions are child-centred and interactive and clearly curriculum-linked.  We are booked on average 200+ days per year with many schools re-booking year on year and some requesting dates a year in advance.

We are expanding our catchment area and beginning to offer our full day visits up to one and a half hour’s drive from home.  Reduced full days and half days are available with an hour’s radius.  There’s never been a better time to get The Specialists!

"I enjoyed holding the weapons!" "I enjoyed playing Nine Men's Morris." "I loved playing Kubb and throwing the other team's pins back." "I liked it when Gregolf told us a story and the children and teachers joined in." "I liked Leagrid showing us the Viking dance."
