Reaching Out

The Better Life Chances-Schools team is delighted to announce that £72,000 has been awarded from Arts Council England and the Department for Education for the second year of the 'Reaching Out' North Hampshire Museum Education Partnership.

The second phase of this exciting  project will continue to provide funding for museum partners to develop and deliver curriculum-linked learning programmes for target schools in the North Hampshire Area. The HCT sites included in this project are Aldershot Military Museum, Basing House, Andover Museum of the Iron Age, and Milestones Museum; while partner sites are Winchester Military Museums and Gilbert White House & The Oates Collection.

Over-arching aims of the project are to:

  • reach out to schools in North Hampshire that have above average indices of deprivation and/or that show a lack of engagement with museums as part of their classroom teaching in order to forge new, sustainable relationships between these schools and their local museums and thus enhance pupils' education
  • bring together a group of partner museums to deliver this project and thus offer a diverse range of opportunities with which the schools can engage, as well as strengthen existing museum networks and their future resilience
