Our Schools and Family Activities Volunteers support staff with our school group visits. During term time we have many schools visit who, alongside our boat trips, like to take part in our school workshops. The majority of our school groups are from primary schools, so children are between 5 and 11 years old, although we do have the occasional secondary or higher education groups visit.

We are looking for volunteers who can help support staff, particularly on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. The hours vary from week to week depending on how many schools we have in so flexibility is important. 

During the school holidays our our Learning and Engagement Volunteers often support our family events which allows volunteers to continue volunteering during school holidays but in a slightly different role. Click here to find out more about our Family Activities Volunteer Role.
