How to Book: Schools
Photo by Greg Smolonski
Advance booking is essential for all school visits, even for self-conducted visits.
To avoid disappointment we recommend booking as far ahead as you can. Our bespoke sessions require a minimum of 6 months notice and our taught gallery sessions are often booked up a term in advance. Similarly, we have a limited number of bookable lunch room slots and cannot guarantee a space to all groups booking a visit.
- Complete an online enquiry form. Please note that completing this form is not a booking. We will reply to your enquiry and confirm a booking within 3 working days.
- Phone 01865 278015. We receive a high volume of phone calls, so you may need to leave a message and we will reply as soon as possible.
We will send a letter to confirm your booking. Please note that we reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee if you cancel less than 14 days before your visit or if you fail to turn up on the day.
Many of our sessions are FREE, but if your organization can afford it a voluntary donation is appreciated. All donations, no matter how small, allow us to continue to develop and deliver our education programmes.
To make a voluntary donation:
- Visit the Ashmolean Education Department on-line store.
- Bring a cheque or cash on the day of your visit. Cheques should be made payable to the Ashmolean Museum.
