Each year Liverpool Cathedral welcomes thousands of children, families, and individuals to experience a range of educational experiences.


About us

Every year, the education team here at Liverpool Cathedral works with thousands of children and young people in a wide range of inspiring educational activities designed for both schools and families.

Our talented team is made up of qualified teachers, education guides, and art practitioners, who have extensive experience working from Early years to further and higher education students

We welcome children from all educational backgrounds, and we enjoy adapting or developing our provision to meet the needs of each group that visits us.

Whether you visit us for a few hours or a full day, our team is on hand to plan your school trip.

We also offer educational experiences for adults, in the form of Lectures.
