Travel bursaries

The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre

Our travel bursaries help a school to visit us each term.

School children in the Museum

Our Travel Bursary scheme

Many schools need to hire coaches to visit the Museum. While this is not a problem for some schools, we are aware that it prevents others from visiting us, because they may not have the budget to cover coach hire and may not serve an area where parents can afford to contribute.

What does the bursary cover?

We can offer up to £250 towards coach costs for one school per term. The cost of the school session at the Museum is still payable by the school.

Please note that the school pays the travel costs in the first instance. The costs will be reimbursed on receipt of a paid invoice or other proof of payment from the travel company.

Who can apply?

Our Travel Bursary scheme is set up to identify schools which might be most in need of financial support. We accept applications for the bursary from schools with at least 25% of pupils with a free school meals entitlement.

The next bursary is available for schools booking for Autumn Term 2014 and onwards.
