School Visits

We can organise a visit to your school, with formal presentations on the local film and television heritage. Students and teachers can also arrange access to our growing archive to support their project work.

As a voluntary community group, we make no charge for these services.

We have now visited three local primary schools (St. Teresa’s, Summerswood and Monksmead) Simply follow the links for more information about each visit.

We have also carried out a major project with all 250 Year 10 students at Hertswood Academy.
