Education and Visits

Cancellation of Scottish Parliament sessions

In light of the closure of schools due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak, our programme of education visits has been suspended for the remainder of the 2019/20 academic term.

We will not be opening bookings for academic year 2020/21 until further notice. We will set a date for bookings from September onwards when there is clarity over when schools will restart.

Please check back here, follow our Twitter and/or our newsletter where revised dates will be posted in due course. You can sign up to the newsletter here  

In the meantime, please use our online resources  - browse around our site to see what you can use in terms of PDFs and online games.
