Leighton House Sambourne House


We take the collections and stories of Leighton House and Sambourne House as the starting points for designing innovative, cross-curricular sessions for primary and secondary students which explore art and design, history, maths, geography, science, music and languages.  

Exploring Leighton House.

Our programme

All our workshops for  schools are free, hands on and practical, interactive, and include exploration of the historic houses and their collections. Our sessions are delivered by professional artists, creatives, museum educators and subject specialists. We also run special event and study days for schools, and CPD events for educators. Explore our library of learning resources including worksheets, audio and film.

From Autumn 2022  our workshops will  be grouped to four themes, so you can pick and mix across both houses to create your own unique learning experience:

  • Traveller's Tales
  • Artists & Makers
  • Creating a sketchbook
  • Discover & Explore
Thank you so, so much for welcoming our students to the museum today. They were beyond excited on their return, and said they had had a wonderful time.
