How can we prepare for our visit?

Having selected from our roadshows, workshops, talks or visits please fill out our Schools & Colleges enquiry form to tell us about your requirements. We will contact you within 7 working days to help you finalise a programme which will fit your requirements. Once a booking is made, we will send you a ‘Teacher Pack’, giving you everything needed to carry out risk assessments and other information to note for the visit.

It would be helpful for us to know if the school has delivered any pre-visit sessions with the students so that we can design the event to complement and build on the knowledge the pupils already have.

How long is a visit?

Times vary, depending on the event you require. Some sessions last for part of a school day, others for a full school day. See more detailed descriptions listed on the website.

How much does it cost?

Charges vary depending on the programme you choose, numbers attending and refreshments required. A member of staff from St Philip’s Centre will accompany your group from the moment you arrive until the time of departure so that you can enjoy the day without any arrangement worries.

For further information about our charges for each option offered please Contact the Centre

What should our pupils wear?

Please dress appropriately, as you would for school, with comfortable footwear for walking. For visits to some places of worship, shoes must be removed on entry. For others, head coverings are required. Further information on this and other protocols on visiting places of worship will be supplied when the booking is confirmed.

Where can we eat?

We can provide food and drink as part of our teaching/education programmes. Please advise us of any dietary requirements at the time of booking.

Are there toilets?

There are toilets in both St Philip’s Centre and Church, including disabled facilities.

What about children with special needs and disabled access?

All visitors will be made welcome at St Philip’s Centre and any place of worship we attend. Our aim is to make your visit rewarding and enjoyable. Every venue we work with has disabled access and is suitable for children of all abilities. Please contact us to discuss any particular needs in your group.

How do we get there and what about parking?

Directions to St Philip’s Centre and Church can be found at the foot of the Contact Us page. Select the blue icon and click on 'Directions'. There is free on-street parking available in surrounding streets but please do not park in the Age UK car park next to the Centre. We will provide suggested directions to other places of worship as required before the visit.
