We offer a range of accessible and fun resources to inspire and engage secondary school pupils with our history. Worksheets are designed to enable students to deepen their understanding of the Art & Design and English curriculum, and share their ideas in diverse ways.

For a unique experience in London, book a free visit to explore our Collections and exhibitions with your pupils. We offer free resources for Key Stages 3-4 which complement group visits and explore different aspects of the Foundling Hospital story. Special resources also accompany our regular programme of exhibitions and displays.

The information given about the history of the Hospital was great! Very informative, engaging and interesting.
