School groups

We can arrange school visits through our service Step Into University Libraries: Visits for Local Schools.

In order to be able to offer schools a good experience, we would encourage arrangements to be made well in advance and for visits to be scheduled outside of University terms.

Groups should be accompanied by leaders or teachers who will adhere to their responsibilities as detailed in Section 2 of the University’s Guidance on arrangements for Protection of Children and Vulnerable Adults.

To arrange a visit, please fill out and return the Library Service Activity Menu.
