The Coast Ed service was founded with support funding from the Arts Council England in 2014. The programme has developed and gone from strength to strength. The initial project was to develop an offer of a Museum Education Service for Schools across Adur, Worthing and Arun. The success of the programme is such that we are now delivering to primary schools across Surrey and East and West Sussex.

WTM can support
With the introduction of the new national curriculum, we are ideally placed to support you with the study of changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age alongside our existing offer covering the Roman and Anglo Saxon period. West Sussex sits in a rich landscape of changing history from the Neolithic hunter gatherers to the Anglo-Saxon burial ground at Highdown Hill.
We can support you and your children in the study of this vast timeframe with our fantastic collections of archaeological finds from the period.
