A Sandford Award!

We’ve received a Sandford award for excellence in heritage education!

Fulham Palace has played an important role in our national heritage and is a rich resource for learning and is rooted in national history as the former home of the Bishops of London.

Sandford Award

The Sandford Award for high achievement in heritage education reflects the level of excellence that our education team have set as standard. The sessions – which include school visits, under 5’s Palace explorers, and the Young Archaeologists’ Club – were all praised for their excellent quality and unique content. Kate and Jean were delighted to receive the award, which is the culmination of so much hard work at the award ceremony in the V&A’s Museum of Childhood on Monday 18 November.
