New programme 2021-22
The New Room’s education programme has been completely updated to include a range of resources that schools and groups can use to engage with the story of John Wesley, his actions and his beliefs in creative and safe ways.
Lessons are now available for Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 which can be delivered online by our education team via Zoom or bought in resource packs. These lessons can also be presented in class by a visiting member of our DBS checked education team, or through a fully risk assessed site visit to the New Room. See our price list and full education pack or explore what’s available for each Key Stage in more detail below.

Three different lessons are available which introduce John Wesley and the New Room and explore Wesley’s fierce opposition to the eighteenth century transatlantic slave trade. One of these is a brand new lesson (produced in conjunction with RE Today) called ‘A Tale of Two Statues’ which compares and contrasts the lives and statues of John Wesley and Edward Colston.Key Stage 2
All lessons come with follow up ideas for future work. You can purchase resource packs through the online shop. For more information or to ask about buying a resource pack please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
