Schools Activity Programme

Historic Scotland sites provide wonderfully atmospheric and unique learning environments. The programmes for early years, primary and secondary schools are packed with an exciting variety of participative learning opportunities at sites all over Scotland, devised with the four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence in mind.

 The Learning Services team strive to be as flexible as possible in terms of content and timing to meet the needs of teachers.  Popular activities include the Junior Guide tours where P6/7 pupils from local primary schools deliver costumed tours of ‘their’ historic site for other visiting primary school groups.
