School visits 2023 - 24

Due to popularity, Discovery Day sessions for all key stages are very limited for the rest of this academic year. If you would still like to visit, there are Planetarium show-only slots available, as well as self-guided visits to the historic buildings of the Royal Observatory. 

We have temporarily suspended our Digital Outreach programme. Please keep an eye on this page for updates. 

Details on our programme for 2024-25 academic year will be published in the Summer term. 

To keep up to date on announcements and news, sign up to our Schools Newsletter.

At the Royal Observatory Greenwich we want to inspire and assist in the learning of all things space and astronomy!

On this page you find information about our schools programme, our free classroom activities and digital resources, along with opportunities for teachers and students to get more involved with our programmes.
