Study Days

Study Days provide Secondary students with in-depth ways to critically explore themes and topics over a full day. Specifically designed and curriculum-linked, Study Days extend classroom study and offer a platform to research and gain further inspiration through interacting with the Collection or temporary exhibitions. Featuring specialist guest speakers and creative practitioners, Study Days are based in the Ondaatje Wing Lecture Theatre and may also include time in the Galleries with guided exhibition viewings, resources, discussions and some practical work, and opportunities to collaborate, participate and reflect.

Booking is essential.
