Engage with our museum – wherever you are. Our collection of plaster casts is a great way to inspire students to learn more about the Greeks, the Romans and their world.

Our Education and Outreach Coordinator

Please note: learning sessions led by our Education and Outreach Coordinator are available Tuesday-Friday, 10am-2pm.


Hi, I’m Will, the Education and Outreach Coordinator and it’s my job to make sure your trip to the Museum is fun and inspiring – not just educational! Whether you’re one of the local schools in Cambridge or are travelling from further afield, I’m here to help you plan your visit and make sure your experience goes smoothly.

I’ve got a strong background in the classical world, studying Classics at Oxford. Since then, I’ve spent several years teaching children from primary school up to A-level, helping others discover the joy of Greek and Roman antiquity, including both Latin and Ancient Greek – so I’m well placed to lead student tours and school visits. I’ve also got broader experience in running family events at museums which means I am just as confident offering sessions for primary and secondary schools.

If you are interested in organising a school group trip to us, perhaps in combination with one of the other University of Cambridge museums, please do shoot me an email or give me a ring on the phone. I’d be happy to discuss your options and ensure your visit to our Cambridge museum meets your needs.

Don’t forget, now you can also experience the Museum in the classroom with our virtual learning service. Our loan boxes are not currently in circulation, but we hope to relaunch them soon. Visiting the Museum is free: we don’t charge for our education service. You can stay up to date with our schools service by joining our mailing list.

How to Book

To make an online or in-person booking, please use our online booking request form.

Our Education and Outreach Coordinator will be in touch to answer any questions or discuss your options in advance of your visit.

Please note, we ask that all school trips are booked in at least a week in advance. Unbooked groups may be turned away at the door.

We want your school group to have fun on your visit to us, but unfortunately we also have to make sure our collection is looked after. Groups who have to be repeatedly warned about behaviour may be asked to leave.
