Learning and Engagement

Here at St Barbe we have lots of knowledge about the local area and love to pass this exciting information on in creative and imaginative ways.

Our learning programme has been developed especially for children to help them understand their local heritage and environment from the prehistoric to the present day. It involves a variety of activities to suit different learning styles, focusing on learning through enjoyment.

St Barbe is proud of our links with the local schools and is currently developing sessions which compliment their teaching and marries with the national curriculum subjects. Please see our Schools Activities page for further information.
