School and College Visits

Students in South Transept page 16

It is wise to book at least a term in advance, especially if you have a particular date in mind.   Some schools book a year in advance!  If for some reason you can’t plan so far ahead, do give us a ring and we will always try to accommodate you.  Unfortunately we cannot offer Children's Guided Tours or any workshops requiring access to the Cathedral on Tuesdays. 

All Children's Guided Tours and Workshops (from ages 5-18) can be booked on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during West Sussex School Term Dates (see link below).

Please read 'Planning Your Visit - Guide for Teachers' and 'On the Day Guidelines for Adult Helpers' for full details (link below). 

Teacher supervised self–guided visits don’t require so much notice but please let us know what you are planning so we can weave your visit around services and let you know if anything unexpected comes up, like funerals.   These do happen – remember, we are a working church! 

Please read 'Guidelines for Self Guided Visits' for full details (link below).

Learning and Engagement Department Booking Process

• Call us on 01243 812497 or email  to check dates and make a preliminary booking
• You will receive an email confirming the date and numbers visiting
• We welcome teachers on pre-visits to discuss their visit and complete a risk assessment (see below Booking Documents - PDF Guidelines for Schools Risk Assessment and the Cathedral's Public Liability Insurance)
• Once a detailed timetable for your visit is agreed by phone or email  or in person you will receive an email containing a confirmation letter, timetable, invoice and map (showing position of the Learning and Engagement Department)
• Any changes to this agreed timetable must be made at least 3 weeks prior to the visit in order for your visit to be appropriately staffed.
• We request payment in advance of your visit. Please arrange for payment to be made as soon as possible. Please arrange for the invoice to go to the correct person for payment. Cheques should be made payable to The Dean and Chapter of Chichester Cathedral. 
• CANCELLATIONS - Please note that if it becomes necessary for you to cancel within twenty working days of the visit, the full cost will be charged. (Notifications must be in writing).
