ESOL Groups

We offer a diverse and unique set of experiences for English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) groups.

Bring your ESOL students to the Air Force Museum for an educator-led tour of our galleries, exhibitions and educational facilities. We understand that taking a tour in a language that is not your own can be challenging, so we customise our tours in accordance with your students’ level of English. Tours can be tailored to suit your needs and interests, and can include any of the following:

  • Guided tour of our main exhibitions and galleries, where items of interest are highlighted and captivating stories of the past and present are told.
  • Guided tour of our Reserve Collection. This ‘behind the scenes’ tour allows viewing access to aircraft and other collection items currently not on display in the Museum itself, and even gives students the opportunity to board one or two aircraft (subject to availability).
  • Board our Andover aircraft and go on a pretend flight. As well as learning about the Andover’s important role in our Air Force’s history, students of any age can enjoy a simulated take off, emergency landing, emergency exit, or a pretend parachute jump!
  • Travel back in time to World War Two in the Pacific Islands, by booking a Pacific Simulator experience. This educational space, which is not available to the general public, allows students to experience the sights, sounds and conditions that our Air Force faced when fighting in the Pacific Islands during World War Two, and can even include a simulated bombing raid.
  • Participate in any one of our education programmes, which we can adjust to your students’ age and English language level(s). Click here for details.
