The Heritage Education Service (HES) is funded by the Isle of Wight Council. It is part of the Isle of Wight Heritage Service.

During the current Covid-19 pandemic we are developing:

  • Online activities, 
  • videos,
  • and resources for use in schools and home-schooling. 

Please contact the Heritage Education Officer  for more information.

The HES can support learning establishments by providing the following services: 

  • Planning and leading educational activities at Carisbrooke Castle Museum.
  • Planning and leading visits to Newport Roman Villa, Cowes Maritime Museum or the Guildhall Museum of Island History.
  • Outreach activities working with you and your class in your school or elsewhere in the community.
  • Lending artefacts and educational material for you to use in your classroom.
  • Free Support and Advice - We are happy to offer advice on how the Isle of Wight Heritage Service can best support your school. We have a number of free resources that relate to the Island’s heritage and offer free lesson preparation and pre-visit planning.
