Programme: Primary tours

Local primary school classes are invited to take part in an interactive educational tour of the airport. Staff and students will have the opportunity to witness terminal operations and see the range of different services available landside. To round the visit off, staff and students are taken to a landside viewing area where they will see aircraft take-offs and landings. Occasionally, there may be the opportunity to listen in on the conversation between Air Traffic Control and the aircraft pilot. Students will also complete a booklet as they move around the tour, which can be downloaded below.

Programme: Your Royal Docks

The pack focuses on the history of the Royal Docks, including the crucial role it played in connecting London to the world in the 19th & early 20th Centuries, life and work in the Victorian Royal Docks and during WW2, and the deindustrialisation of the area. It also gets the students thinking about change and regeneration going on now and into the future.
