Let us support your visit and get the most out of Geevor's resources available to you.

Geevor is a cross-curricular site and encompasses topics such as the industrial revolution, social history, even environmental science. Knowing that time out of timetable is valuable to secondary students, we aim to provide a bespoke service which uses the site as inspiration for long-term projects to make the most of your visit experience. Topics as broad as Music, Design & Technology, Art, English and Geography can be applied onsite.

Support can be given to all visiting groups, even if you decide to self-guide whilst onsite. Specific workshops can be delivered either at school or onsite; resources can be provided to help your learning before, during and after your visit, such as photos, objects, sugggested classroom activities and site trails; extra activities, like hand-drilling, can be made available to you through Geevor's Learning Team; there may even be the possibility of exhibiting your students' final creative products to the public onsite at Geevor!

Short-term work experience placements are available each year for students to get involved in the different aspects of the working site as a whole and behind-the-scenes. Alternatively, longer-term volunteer placements in areas that interest you and for however long a time you have available, are also possible.

Please contact Geevor's Learning Team to discuss the possibilities on site.
