Resources for Schools
An educational trip to Wells Cathedral can enhance pupils understanding of special places, inspirational buildings, historical events and Christian theology.
We are committed to making a Cathedral visit accessible to all UK school groups and offer two simple packages for school parties booking in advance:
A shorter visit of around an hour at £1.80 per pupil. This can include a guided tour at no extra cost, subject to guide availability. We need at least two weeks’ notice.
A programme with tour and activities at £3.90 per pupil. Day programmes involve staff and other spaces, for example, a guided tour on a theme of your choice, a related activity session led by the Cathedral Education Officer and use of the private lunch room, toilets and bag storage facilities.
Both options offer free places for accompanying staff (supervision 1:10 please). Prices are inclusive of VAT, payable through invoice.
Please Note: unbooked groups will be asked on the day for our suggestion donation i.e. adults £6, children £3.
Our beautiful oak-framed Education Suite has been specially designed to accommodate school groups. Its secure access provides a contained space that serves as a great base from which to explore the cathedral as part of a programmed day. It offers toilet facilities for children, cupboards for bags and coats and tables for crafts and/or lunch.
The ‘Schools’ pages on our website have more information about what packages we can offer and the benefits a visit to the Cathedral can bring. Alternatively, our Cathedral Education Officer can be contacted directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01749 674483 Ext 212.
