KS3, KS4 and KS5

Our KS3, KS4 and KS5 tours and workshops are frequently tailored to match a school or college's own scheme of work across a variety of subject areas.

Consider using our building to explore local history, as a stimulus for creative and visual arts, or to enhance the classroom teaching of your subject.

Workshops we have offered at KS3 and KS4 include:

  • Remembrance and memorial
  • Anselm's ontological argument
  • Eucharist
  • Rites of passage
  • Crime and punishment in the Consistory Court

What teachers say:

'Our pupils loved lots of different parts of the visit - and the varied activities meant that the needs of different puils were met effectively.  Some highlights included the tour, the worship workshop and the Consitory Court.'

Mark Turner, RS Teacher, Woodchurch High School

Experts in history, philosophy and religious studies are available via the Cathedral Library to offer seminar sessions. Please enquire about these via the Education Department.
