We may be able to offer bespoke content for your school group, such as a student-led welcome session for your students. Let us know on the booking form if this is something you'd like to discuss.

If you book your school group, we'll drop you an email to confirm details of who is attending from your school. This will allow us to send Opend Day information directly to your students.

Teacher's Lounge

On Friday 28 June, we will host a Teacher's Lounge as part of the event.

In the lounge, you can take a break from the event and take advantage of the following:

  • complimentary tea, coffee and pastries
  • sign-in to ensure that you’ll find out about further opportunities
  • learn about changes to our admissions policy and outreach opportunities
  • reclaim your school’s travel expenses

Transport funding available for state schools/colleges

If you are arranging a visit from a state school, we can also help with your group's travel costs.

Up to £250 per state school/college is available, evidence of purchase must be supplied.

Claiming more than £250

If you wish to claim more than £250, please book your group by Wednesday 12 June at the latest.

We will consider requests on an individual basis. We'll consider factors such as:

  • the distance traveled
  • widening participation data
  • the number of students in your school group
  • the number of claims submitted by schools

Any submissions after Wednesday 12 June will receive no more than the initial limit of £250.
