Hi, I'm Jennie anJennie Thornberd I'm the Education and Outreach Coordinator at the Museum of Classical Archaeology. It's my job to make sure your school trips to the Museum are fun and inspiring – and not just educational. Whether you're one of the local schools in Cambridge or are travelling further afield, I'm here to help you plan your visit to us.

My background is in teaching. I have a PGCE in Classics and several years of experience teaching schools, where I've taught Latin and Greek as well as Classical Civilisation – including the papers on ancient art and architecture, so I'm well placed to lead student tours and secondary school visits. I've also got experience in running museum education sessions more broadly and am just as confident with primary school groups.

If you would like to organise a school group trip to us, perhaps in combination with one of the other University of Cambridge museums, why not just drop me a line by email or give me a ring on the phone? I'll be happy to discuss your options and make sure your visit to our Cambridge museum meets your needs.

Don't forget, you can also take the Museum back to your classroom – we have loan boxes full of objects which are really useful classroom resources. Borrowing our loan boxes or visiting the Museum is free: we don't charge for our education service.

You can stay up to date with our schools service, too, by joining our mailing list.
