Primary Schools Programme

Our Primary School Programme supports STEM teaching and learning for primary schools across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Schools can visit us at our Science Oxford Centre in Headington or we can visit your school. We have a wide range of STEM-focused workshops and shows that can be run in your school, as well as outreach kits that you can book for science clubs or your class. We also run CPD (Continuing Professional Development) for primary teachers to inspire you in teaching science, design and technology, and computing.

If you are a home educator looking for ways to enrich home learning, visit our Home Educators page for ideas.

Science Oxford Centre has been awarded the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom’s Quality Badge, a seal of approval that shows that our primary education programme is of a high standard. The Quality Badge certificate was first awarded in 2019 after the Centre opening, and was re-awarded in 2022, reflecting our continued quality offering (read more).

I really liked inside the planetarium and I was sad to come out, because I wanted to stay in there forever!
