For School Groups & Teachers

Buxton is a beautiful historic spa town surrounded by the Peak District National Park. Visitors have travelled to Buxton for thousands of years to drink and bathe in the famous natural mineral water.

Now it’s your turn to visit! 

We’re on a mission to bring Buxton’s history alive through a range of cross-curricular activities and workshops. We want all learners – from early years to sixth formers– to feel connected to and proud of the local history on their doorstep. We’re a great place to enrich the curriculum, build chronological understanding and develop enquiry skills. 

Inspire your learners’ curiosity, deepen engagement with the landscape around them and enjoy the experience of learning outside the classroom in Buxton. We also deliver workshops at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery.
