About school visits
Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre has maintained a popular school visits programme for more than 20 years. In 2016 we received the Sandford Award for Heritage Education, highlighting the quality experience and educational value that a visit here offers. We’re proud of our special attraction and are confident it will take your visiting children on a learning journey they will remember and talk about for a long time.
Our multi-sensory exhibits, object handling, exhibitions and hands on interactives mean that children will engage in this rich topic, whatever their learning style. Cross-curricular opportunities will keep you inspired for more great ideas when you get back to the classroom.
School visits are currently suspended due to Government guidance. As we remain uncertain as to when physical site visits can take place again, we may still be able to assist you.
We have the ability to meet your class in a Microsoft Teams meeting, with one of our learning team speaking to you from our Education Room. Using images of the attraction and showing objects and costume, we can offer a 30 minute interactive talk around our fishing heritage to suit your year group. There could be opportunity for a live Q&A between us and your school to offer a little more excitement to your classroom learning.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can help you further and arrange a session learning plan.
Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre in a Box
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been fortunate in securing funding that has supported our attraction and numerous projects. Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre in a Box is a new loans box service, featuring the sounds, smells and objects of the 1950’s Home, Above Decks and Below Decks on a Grimsby Trawler. The project will soon be ready for loaning, so watch this space!
