SEND groups

The Horniman can be a great place to visit for SEND groups - here's some information to help you plan your day.

SEND visits during the Covid-19 crisis

We are keen to hear from SEND groups and providers so that we can tailor our approach to best meet your needs in the challenging circumstances of the ongoing pandemic.

We can offer an outreach visit for your setting, a tailored virtual online session, and we are also happy to accommodate your group onsite for a safe and enjoyable visit when government guidelines allow this.

We have a number of SEND learning sessions which are fully adaptable. Please contact us to discuss your requirements. We would love to hear from you!
