Each school party visit has their own designated timetable to meet the requirements of students and teachers. Our Access and Learning team liaise directly with schools, however we have included some of the frequently asked questions listed below.
Where do we go when we arrive?
On arrival, the organising teacher/adult needs to report to a member of staff in the Visitor Centre. A member of the Access and Learning Department will come out to greet you. Please note that the Museum opens at 10.00am. If your party arrives before this time, please wait in your coach or by the entrance to the Visitor Centre until 10.00am as we cannot allow entrance into the Museum before this time.
Are all parts of the Museum accessible to wheelchair users?
Yes, all parts of the Museum are accessible to wheelchair users. It is helpful if you inform us prior to your visit if there are wheelchair users within your party.
Will we have a personal guide throughout the day?
Your chosen activity is led by Museum staff. Visits to other parts of the Museum are led by the teachers themselves, but there are members of staff available in all buildings if you have questions.
Should we adhere to the timetable at all times?
The timetable is flexible; however there are some elements that must be adhered to at the specified times e.g. Your chosen activity, lunch and Fun ‘n’ Flight.
Is there a designated lunch area?
The Cosford Crewroom is an indoor lunch room for schools, which must be pre-booked. On busy days, alternative indoor spaces may be offered when booking. If the weather is suitable, and you would prefer to eat outside, we also have an outdoor picnic areas on site.
Please note, there are no facilities for storing lunches and bags, so groups are advised to carry these around site or leave on transport.
How do I pay?
Please remember to bring payment with you on the day. Payments for workshops are accepted at the Visitor Centre, and you can pay with cash or a cheque payable to RAF Museum. If you have requested Simulator or 4D motion rides, payment is accepted by cash or cheque made payable to RAF Museum Shop.
Alternatively, on arrival schools can request to be invoiced.
If you need to cancel your booking but give less than two weeks’ (10 working days) notice, you will be charged in full. Likewise, if your school fails to arrive on the booked date of your activity, you will also be charged in full.
What do I do if my question isn't on the list?
For any other questions please contact one of the team on 01902 376 243 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
