School Visits


The schools programme at the M&S Company Archive is completely free and offers cross-curricula workshops hosted at the Archive. Explore history, art & design, technology and much more through our fascinating collections. Or bring the collection into your classroom with the M&S eLearning Hub. Created in partnership with My Learning, find out how to build the fascinating past and innovative present of M&S into your teaching plans.

All workshops take place inside the Michael Marks Building. The public areas of the building are all on ground level, and have level access throughout. The building is fully wheelchair accessible. School and group workshops take place in the multi-purpose function room, which includes space for storing coats and bags. Workshops also include use of the interactive Marks in Time exhibition which occupies the ground floor. A risk assessment will be provided as part of the booking process. The function room can accommodate up to 55 people, and can be used as a dining space for packed lunches.
