Please be aware that we travel up to a distance of 45 minutes from Leicester. If your school is further than this, why not ask us about our Virtual Classroom activities.

All outreach programmes start at 10:00am and we will (subject to travelling conditions) aim to arrive at your school approximately 45 minutes prior to this start time.
