Exciting workshops for primary schools

We offer schools the chance to take part in exciting curriculum-based workshops that explore the history of Brixton Windmill and the local area.

Each workshop is designed so that it touches upon important elements in the schools curriculum.

Follow the links on the right to find out details about each of our four workshops currently offered.  If you would like to take various elements of these workshops to design a tailor-made workshop suitable for your class group or your current learning in the classroom, please don't hesitate to contact our Development and Education Officer to discuss this.
