Educational Visits to Romsey Abbey
We want to make Romsey Abbey as useful as possible to your school (College/University) to enhance the curriculum you offer your students.
We want to make sure that every visit you make meets your needs but might also exceed your expectations. To do this we want to tailor each visit to your specific requirements.
We have a dedicated person for you to call on for support. Chris Pritchard who has been a teacher, Headteacher and education adviser can meet you in your school, liaise with individual staff, be present in the Abbey when you visit and support you with follow up ideas.
If you are thinking about using Romsey Abbey, Chris would be delighted to meet you to find out how the Abbey can be the ‘best resource’ on your doorstep. If you already use the Abbey, Chris would be delighted to ensure your visit is facilitated so your students get the best experience they can.
Within the team at Romsey Abbey, we can also support schools with collective worship, religious education, ethos and values. Please do get in contact with Chris, to talk about possibilities or to discuss a particular need on
