Discover our adapted Learning programme, offering engaging and inspiring opportunities for learners, all designed to be safe, accessible, relevant and flexible.   

Our specially designed free virtual workshops, delivered by our experienced Learning team, bring the science and history of the Bridge to life, encouraging pupils to test their problem-solving and enquiry skills.  Our new topic-based resources, featuring films, worksheets  and activities will enhance your topic-based teaching, whether you are studying bridges, rivers, London or icons, and cover STEM, history and literacy areas of the curriculum. 

Whilst we’re not currently hosting facilitated tours and onsite workshops, we have a range of resources to support your self-guided visit. 

We will be adding more content and ways to engage with our programme throughout the term, so be sure to check back regularly.
