Welcome to Coventry Cathedral’s Schools Team pages.


Come and investigate a site rich in history and art and find out why one teacher called it “top of my list of places to visit”.

The Cathedral Schools Team is dedicated to making each visit both memorable and educational for every student. Take a look at our School Tours Programme to start planning your own experience. We offer a variety of tours and workshops for primary and secondary pupils that have been designed around the national curriculum, or we can tailor make a visit to suit you.

We are also continuing to expand our very popular Early Years Foundation Stage Cathedral Workshops.
