Discover our learning programme designed for students from Key Stages 1-5. Our offer includes exclusive self-guided visits, workshops, resources, CPD events for teachers and Teachers' Private Views.
School visits happen on Mondays and Tuesdays when we are closed to the public and students will have exclusive access to the collection.
We offer free admission for children under 18 and full-time students. Accompanying adults need to pay admission: standard £7.50, concession £5.50.
The workshops are designed to support the National Curriculum and are adapted to the aims of each key stage. The uniqueness of our collection allows us to address specific themes such as movement, identity, composition and much more. The works are always examined within their cultural, social and historical contexts and stylistics comparisons are drawn between them.
Workshops are delivered by Estorick Educators or freelance artists and can be based upon our permanent collection or temporary exhibitions. Sessions focus on selected works from our collection, before allowing participants to explore ideas and themes further through practical activities. They cost £80 for a 1.5h workshop, including all materials for a maximum of 30 students. Please see the pages below for more information about our workshops.
We count with a number of resources designed to support your lesson planning, as well as help teachers and students to have a deeper understanding of our collection and its underlying themes.

SEND and Accessibility
Our first and ground floors are fully step-free accessible. If you have any accessibility requirement, please let us know in advance.
All our workshops are process focused and therefore neurodivergent friendly. We use a range of strategies during the session to make the activities inclusive for all participants such as booking schools on days when the gallery is closed, deploying visual supports and using accessible language. However, if you would like to let us know of any further adjustments, please do contact us in advance.
Workshops for SEND schools can be tailored on request.
EYFS and Key Stages 1 and 2
Estorick-led sessions support creative learning across the curriculum. While looking at the art works, students will exercise their skills in language, history and geography as well as visual literacy, while engaging in creative and enjoyable projects. Handling of materials, additional photographs, manifesto facsimiles and sound recordings can all be used to bring the sessions to life and to support the learning outcomes. Students can record from first-hand observation in the galleries, whilst being encouraged to use their imagination.
