Award winning programmes
Winners of The Sanford Award
The Sandford Award is an independently judged, quality assured assessment of education programmes at heritage sites, museums, archives and collections across the British Isles. It reflects the excellence of the sessions delivered by the team.
In the 2023 assessment, the lead judge said: “The Historic Dockyard Chatham Learning Team deliver an exciting and inspiring programme. They provide hands-on experiences for students that cannot be delivered in the classroom and workshops are led by highly skilled and knowledgeable facilitators. All of the sessions have clear curriculum links and learning objectives, and schools will experience engaging activities that enhance their students’ learning. The service has continued to maintain extremely high standards since the Award was last granted in 2018. It offers an outstanding learning programme and a truly memorable experience for those who visit.”
Our learning programmes are accessible for all and we are happy to work with you to ensure we meet the needs of your group.
We have developed detailed access information for all of our galleries and open spaces which you may like to review ahead of your visit. We are also Changing Places registered and have a dedicated facility.
