Schools Programme 2023

We have a rich and varied programme for schools – two programmes indeed, one for primary and one for secondary. It’s thanks to the many organisations and individuals who have kindly provided funding for the various activities to come to Orkney and visit schools with no charge.

In addition, schools are able to access Festival talks without charge. We just need to know in advance to make sure that there is space available. Talks cover a wide range of subjects, some in the curriculum and others related to it in one way or another.

There is also material of interest for schools as well as people of varied ages in our online magazine, Frontiers.



And we have a new and unusual competition! It’s to travel on a celestial odyssey, travelling outwards from the Sun to the planets of the Solar System, one by one. You start with the Sun in St Magnus Cathedral, and then look for Mercury, Venus and so on. Each planet is hosted by a well-known local business, with each location having clues to the next one.
