About the Access Fund for Schools

The fund offers your school the opportunity to have a high quality, immersive learning experience at the iconic sites of Hampton Court Palace and the Tower of London. 

We support visits from Key Stage 1 - 4 students and special school students.

The fund covers:

  • Cost of general admission for up to 105 pupils
  • A facilitated session for all children at mainstream schools and up to 10 pupils from special schools
  • Adults accompanying children at our stated ratios.

All participating schools will also be given the opportunity to attend a free familiarisation day at their chosen site (which includes free entry), join our Teacher Network and participate in structured evaluation activities during the visit.

How to apply

The Access Fund for Schools 2018-19 is now closed. The Fund will re-open for applications in April 2019. Please see this page for further details nearer the time.

If you have any queries regarding the fund, please email the fund administrator at accessfund@hrp.org.uk.
