Schools and groups

The Lady Lever Art Gallery offers a wide range of activities, sessions and resources for education and community groups of all ages. These are run by our  Education and Communities team.

Learning sessions

Learning sessions are free of charge and usually link to the national curriculum through our collections and displays. Many sessions are led by a member of our team, while some are self-led. Booking well in advance is advised. 

Booking a group visit

Schools and groups can also pre-book our activity rooms including lunch facilities. 

Preparing for your visit

We strongly advise that all teachers and accompanying adults visiting the gallery with a group read the following guidance notes. This will give you all the practical information you need to ensure that you have an enjoyable and productive visit, including sample risk assessments. 


Whether you're visiting the gallery or would like to use activities in the classroom, we have a number of resources available including a trail, a sketchbook and online quizzes and games.
