Schools

Truro Cathedral is a popular destination for schools when choosing their educational visits for the year. A warm welcome awaits from our learning team who will bring alive the story of Truro Cathedral and its people, both as a historic sacred space, and a living, vibrant place for all to share and enjoy today.

 All of our workshops have been risk assessed and are delivered in a Covid-safe way.

Self-Guided Visits

Self-guided school group visits to Truro Cathedral are also available for a fee of £1.00 per student. For this fee we will make available an optional copy of an age-appropriate cathedral explorer trail for each child. Please be aware that this fee applies even if you decide not to use the trails. Due to the busy nature of the cathedral all self-guided visits must be pre-booked in advance. 

Book for the following term with 5% off the workshop fee. Book before end of July for the Autumn term, before end of November for the Spring term and before end of March for the Summer term.

All school visits must be booked in advance. If you book early before the deadlines above not only will the cost reduce but we can offer more flexibility with choice of dates and times. Currently school tours and workshops are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, between the hours of 10am and 3pm during term-time.
