The Reading Ancient Schoolroom can now travel! Our mobile ancient classroom can be assembled in any large room, holds up to 30 children at a time, and can welcome multiple groups of that size in the course of a single day.
We have to charge for the mobile schoolroom; this is because when asking our volunteers, who work very hard to make the schoolroom enjoyable and educational for all participants, to commit to giving up an entire day to benefit one school, we think it is only right to pay those volunteers for their time and reimburse them for their travel expenses. If you are interested in this option please contact us (E.Dickey@reading.ac.uk) and let us know what you need, and we will be able to quote you a price. (Essentially the more children need to go through the schoolroom per hour the more it costs, as the number of teachers needed depends on turnover in the schoolroom; with our current facilities the maximum turnover is 30 children per hour, which requires 5 teachers at £30 each per day plus expenses. By contrast 10 children per hour requires only 2 or 3 teachers, depending on the ages of the children.)
