Learning is at the centre of the Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City project. Our aim is to give communities, children and young people – both in and out of Hull – the chance to learn about the city’s unique maritime story and gain valuable skills and experiences.

Showcasing Hull's maritime story

The Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City team are keen to work with Primary and Secondary Schools throughout the project.

The views of teachers and pupils will be used to inform the developments taking place at the Hull Maritime Museum, the Arctic Corsair and North End Shipyard. In addition, we are going to create five new, curriculum-linked, learning sessions for schools which will be available for delivery at these sites when they re-open.

Over the next couple few years, whilst the site redevelopments are underway, we will be running an exciting outreach programme. Featuring pop-up assembly performances, the chance to handle artefacts from the Hull Maritime Museum’s collections, and the opportunity to work with historians from the University of Hull, these activities will bring Hull’s seafaring stories alive in the classroom!

Take a look at the primary schools and secondary schools learning pages in order to find out more about what is coming up.

Educating the next generation

Community projects and events

The Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City project aims to give local people and visitors to Hull an opportunity to make a meaningful connection with the city’s maritime story, as well as a chance to gain valuable skills and experience amazing events.

We are going to be running exciting programmes of activity within the local community. For example, we are going to offer taster workshops in different venues across the city which will give people the chance to develop an interest in arts and crafts and allow them to learn more about Hull’s maritime heritage. In addition, we will be delivering reminiscence events at local community cafes and will be popping up at some of the exciting city events which will be running in Hull throughout the year.

Finally, when the sites re-open, we want to deliver a dynamic programme of activities for people to enjoy. This will range from inclusive open days for visitors with additional needs, gallery based activities and tours, after-hours activities for students, as well as a city-wide celebration once the project has been completed.
