Date Posted: 11/12/2013

Education has taken centre stage at the Mary Rose Museum after the Portsmouth attraction welcomed its 10,000th pupil and celebrated a major awards win.

Since the museum opened at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on the 31st May this year, the learning department has welcomed nearly 170 school groups and colleges.

A class from Harrison Primary School in Fareham this month included the 10,000th  student to attend the museum.

Mary Kinoulty, head of learning said: “We are delighted with the success of our new learning programme. Schools have come from all over the country to visit us and take part in workshops.

“Since opening at the end of May this year, 10,000 pupils have enjoyed sessions in the classroom, science laboratory or the Tudor gun drill in the museum. We look forward to welcoming many more schools and colleges throughout 2014 and beyond.”

The museum has also achieved the Silver award for Best Education Product at the British Educational Travel Association (BETA) British Youth Travel Awards.

The awards, held at Westfield in London, recognise the best organisations engaged in youth, student and educational travel the country has to offer.
