What we offer on a school trip
We offer one hour educational trips to primary school children. Our volunteers love to lead children's groups and really bring what it was like on board to life. If you have any specific areas of study that you'd like us to cover then please call us to discuss.
The Matthew is a replica of the Tudor caravel that John Cabot sailed from Bristol to Newfoundland in 1497. We primarily offer one hour educational trips to primary school children, where our guides bring to life what it would have been like on board a Tudor sailing ship.
All trips are deigned to fit in with the national history curriculum. For KS1 the trip focuses on local history and pirates, including the famous Bristol pirate Edward Teach aka. Blackbeard. For KS2 pupils learn more about John Cabot and the discovery of Newfoundland and life on board a Tudor ship.
We do also offer school trips for older groups as well as foreign language schools. If you have any specific requirements or areas of study that you’d like us to cover then please call us to discuss.
We want to make sure that you get the very best out of your time with us. Please get in touch with Amelie or Hannah in the office if you’d like to talk about any of the trips that we offer.
