We will be innovative, welcoming and accessible at every step, striving to connect people to the site and the community. We vow to work in collaborative, honest ways and give all learners the opportunity to work creatively to do the same.

Our virtual workshop spaces are fully booked for the Autumn Term!
The Story of the Mulberry Tree is a virtual workshop for Key Stages 1 (English and Science) and Key Stage 2 (English). We are trying to create a story about how the Mulberry Tree came to live in the garden at Hogarth’s House, but we’re a bit stuck, can your class help?
The interactive session is 30 minutes, but there are tasks for the students to complete beforehand so we recommend the topic stretches over a few lessons. Make sure you and your class watch the introductory videos below in advance of your visit as they include details of each task.
Our spaces for the Autumn term are fully booked, check back in the Spring Term to see if more spaces open up.

Hogarth At Home resources
During lockdown, we released a set of cross-curricular resources for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils called Hogarth At Home. They were designed for at home learning as they require minimal resources and do not need to be printed.
As some pupils continue to be learning from home, including during self-isolation periods, these resources are still available to download.
Following on from the success of our Hogarth At Home resources, we have developed a series of in-classroom learning resources. A set of topics will be released each term of the 2020-2021 academic year, with offers for Key Stage 1 through to A Level.
We are proud partners with the London Transport Museum in their ACE funded Young Freelancers Programme. Young Freelancers support the development and delivery of our Schools Programme.
New programming coming soon!
Thanks to generous funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and as part of our Hogarth’s Mulberry Garden Project, we will soon be able to offer new opportunities for both Primary and Secondary Schools.
Primary Schools Programme
Our new offer will include:
Workshops for Key Stages 1 and 2 around printing techniques, The Enraged Musician print and our 350 year old mulberry tree
self-guided visit resources
More downloadable resources to use in the classroom
Secondary Schools Programme
Our new offer will include:
Self-guided visit resources
Downloadable resources to use in the classroom

We are also proud to be working with Chiswick School on a student-led film project looking at William Hogarth’s prints.
Schools will be welcome to have a self-guided visit to Hogarth’s House during our opening hours, but we kindly request that schools inform us prior to any visits by contacting our Learning Officer. The rooms of our eighteenth-century house are small and we need to ensure we can accommodate your visit. Only one class will be allowed to visit at a time and we require a minimum of one adult to every four pupils.
Due to Covid-19 our self-guided visit offer is currently suspended. We will be reviewing this decision in Spring 2021 and hope to welcome you and your class to Hogarth’s House soon. Email our Learning and Engagement Manager Elizabeth Bryan to discuss this or other ways to engage by emailing Elizabeth.Bryan@Hounslow.gov.uk
