FAQs for schools

Below are some of the frequently asked questions about school sessions and our answers.

How do I pay for my booking?

Once your session is confirmed we’ll send you an invoice for the full amount, which must be paid within two weeks from invoice date. Invoices can be paid by BACS, cheques made payable to ‘Fulham Palace Trust’, or credit/debit card. If paying by card, a payment processing fee will be charged.

Are there free sessions for classes?

Yes. We have free trails and activities including on our school sessions page, and we encourage teachers and schools to use our site for their own self-led sessions.

Please let us know when you plan to visit so we can make sure the site is accessible by completing our booking form.

How many adults need to attend with the children?

Groups must bring appropriate adult supervision. Our adult to child ratio is:

  • 0 to 3 years: one adult to three children
  • 4 to 12 years: one adult to five children
  • 13 to 18 years: one adult to ten children

If your group does not have the minimum number of adults we reserve the right to refuse admission.

Are there facilities for those with special educational needs and disabilities?

Yes. We welcome visits from SEND schools — our tranquil building and gardens are a sympathetic environment for pupils with additional needs.

Fulham Palace is fully accessible for wheelchair users. Visit our access page for more information.

To discuss the needs of your class and how we can support them you can get in touch with our learning team on education@fulhampalace.org or +44 (0)20 7751 2432.

Where can we eat a packed lunch?

Our large lawn is perfect for picnics in nice weather. We also have indoor lunch spaces that can be booked to use either before or after your session. If you’d like to reserve a lunch space, please request this on your booking form.
