For Schools

Visiting the Barber Institute to see artworks in person is an inspiring, stimulating and unique learning experience for school students. We believe in the power of visual art to promote discussion and creativity.

Our schools programme is under redevelopment. Informed by conversations with teachers and partners, we are currently developing a range of new opportunities for schools to engage with the Barber.

Our current offer supports Secondary Schools (KS3 and above) to visit our galleries for guided tours and self-guided visits. These are supported by a range of downloadable resources.

Please Note: All Barber galleries will close on 2 October 2023, remaining closed until late June 2024 as we begin the first phase of a building improvement project. We look forward to re-launching our Barber Schools onsite offer from July 2024.
