We have a wide range of KS2 workshops examining history from the Romans through to post-war Britain, as well as a workshops focusing on how Trowbridge has changed since Victorian times, including a look at cultural diversity since WW2.

The sessions are very hands-on with plenty of object handling and investigation, and there are activities based on literacy and numeracy.

    I am interested in bringing a group of pupils to Trowbridge Museum on 2.2.12. This is part of a Humanities day topic on Industry. I would like to focus on the development of the textile industry in Trowbridge, from a cottage industry to the factory system, the significance of the location of Trowbridge for the development of the industry, and the role of mechanisation. It would be useful for pupils to see displays and handle artefacts.
    There was a very successful visit to Trowbridge museum last month, and you will be familiar with the needs of our pupils. It will be a Y10 group, but the presentation can be pitched at a level more appropriate for KS2/3.
    If possible, I would like to arrange 2 visits: from approx. 10-11 am. and from approx. 1.15-2.15 pm.
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hello Ken,

    Thanks for getting in touch. We can certainly do that for you. I’ll put together an outline and email it to you together with risk assessment, etc.

    Thanks and Happy New Year.

  3. Kerry McLean says:

    I am interested in bringing my KS3 class from Fosse Way special school to Trowbridge museum, as part of our topic, ‘world at work’, in September.

    I think the Victorian Mill workshop would be the most appropriate. There would be 12 students. They are years 7+8, but the content should be pitched at KS2 level with simple language. How much would the workshop cost per student?

    Thank you for your assistance.
