The sessions are designed as part of a progression route programme, so that young people can become part of our youth opera programme. We also offer mentoring and financial support to assist disadvantaged young people. We are specifically working with schools in community first areas or those who receive the PDG.

Winding House Museum
The Winding House is the museum for Caerphilly County Borough and has an exciting, award winning Schools Programme built around the History Curriculum for Wales, Cwricwlwm Cymreig and the Literacy and Numeracy framework.
Our hands-on approach brings history to life in a meaningful way. Pupils will gain knowledge and understanding of a subject by carrying out an enquiry that develops their historical skills through asking questions, using a variety of sources and communicating their findings.
We are very happy to engage your pupils with their topic through museum based workshops, or our outreach sessions that take place in your setting.
