Planning your visit
All school and education visits must be booked in advance by contacting us on 0151 644 4803 or at firstname.lastname@example.org To secure your booking we need the following details:
- Date you wish to visit – with alternative dates if possible
- Time of arrival and length of visit
- What you would like your group to do during your visit
- Estimated number in your group
- Name of the person in charge of the group
- Contact name, phone number, address and email address
We confirm all bookings in writing. Please check the confirmation form and contact us if you have any queries. We will also send detailed risk assessment information with your booking confirmation.
We recommend the following ratio of adults to pupils/students:
1:4 for pupils aged 7 and under
1:7 for pupils or students aged 8 – 16
Bring as many adult helpers as possible – there is no admission charge for them.
Preparing for your visit
We strongly recommend that teachers or group leaders visit Port Sunlight prior to your school visit. For a free admission voucher to the museum please contact our Learning Team. If you would like to see the Old School Room at the Lyceum and discuss your visit with the Learning Officer please contact us to arrange a convenient time.
We offer a variety of loan boxes containing real and replica objects, photographs, books and posters. The box also contains an information folder for teachers with worksheets suitable for photocopying. Please get in touch to check availability.
We have a gift shop which can get very busy, so school groups are only permitted inside in small groups and when accompanied by an adult.
