Welcome to the National Portrait Gallery’s 2012/2013 programmes for schools and colleges
Bring your school face-to-face with history and contemporary culture at the National Portrait Gallery this year. The National Portrait Gallery places learning at its heart, using the medium of portraiture to increase students’ and teachers’ understanding of the men and women who have and who are contributing to the culture, identity and rich diversity of Britain. The Gallery’s innovative changing programme of exhibitions and displays means there is always something new and exciting to experience during the school year.
