School bookings for the autumn term 2020: Friday 4 December to Friday 16 December

Many thanks for your patience while we carefully risk assessed the Milestones school programmes to ensure that we can offer the safest possible visits for schools, other visitors and museum staff.

For the autumn term we are able to offer bookings from Friday 4 December to Friday 16 December, per day:

  • KS1 Toys & Games; one school 'bubble' only; maximum of 64 students
  • Self-led visit; one school 'bubble' only; maximum of 64 students
  • Educational loans boxes are available for hire from our sister site, SEARCH
  • See our Loans boxes and resources page for classroom-based learning ideas

Unfortunately the interactive and immersive nature of the other Milestones’ programmes means that the learning outcomes will be difficult to achieve while adhering to the COVID-19 guidelines that we are all working within. We are proud of our high quality learning offer and want to provide the best possible experience to support schools, and are not satisfied that this will be the case for the other programmes with the current restrictions.

School bookings from January 2021

We are taking bookings as usual from January 2021 onwards, subject to government guidance in place at that time. Changes or cancellations to bookings due to government guidance on COVID-19 will not be charged.

Please contact us with any queries: milestones.schools@hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk

We apologise for any disappointment caused by this temporary suspension of some school programmes, and will be delighted to welcome you to Milestones when we are able to resume our school programmes in full once more.

Best wishes, Milestones Learning team
