School Learning Visits

Why visit our schools?

There is a heightened interest in providing young people with a comprehensive, stimulating and captivating curriculum that nurtures the entire individual. Employers now have higher expectations for youth to possess an array of knowledge, skills and attitudes. In addition, there is an escalating need for our young people to feel confident in their ability to manage the complexities of today’s world.

At Big Education we are dedicated to ensuring every young person has access to a meaningful education, enabling them to make a constructive contribution within their communities, our planet and their future. Our school visits give you the opportunity to explore how our schools have created a curriculum encompassing academic achievements, character growth and wellbeing as well as creativity and problem-solving abilities.

What to expect

School 21 invites visitors to experience its culture and practices through a regular programme of learning visits. Since opening in 2012, School 21 has been visited by over 1,000 schools. In order to sustain the quality of these visits, a fee of £345 per person is charged and a minimum of 8 people must register. For those interested in visiting Primary schools Surrey Square and School 360 or who are unable to make the upcoming dates for a School 21 visit, please register your interest via the short form provided.
