Background/Booking & Costing Information

History Alive in Schools is covered by full Public Liability Insurance and our Speaker(s) undergo regular Enhanced Disclosure Scotland checks/PVG Disclosures in relation to other employments (details on request).

Displays vary in duration - most now REQUIRE the longer morning slot in school owing to the content and amount of supporting equipment.  However, those specifically designed for younger pupils can easily fit into the shorter afternoon period. 

Due to logistical issues and the fact I am now caring for a very poorly hubby I have been finding the double talk days (where I have to 'quick change' at lunch time) increasingly more difficult.  Depending on topics I might still look at the feasibility of this if schools demand it but it is easier for me to just do a single session in a day.  I am willing to travel as often as required by schools and will still offer multiple talk discounts but bookings will generally now only be for single topic days.

As a solo concern our main area of operation is limited to a travel radius of about a one to one and a half hour journey from any of my available 3 bases (home in South Ayrshire), relatives home in North Ayrshire or family caravan near Loch Lomond).  Sadly I cannot travel too far owing to caring responsibilities.  I do welcome any and all enquiries & will explore posibilities but if the journey time is felt too far then sadly I might not be able to offer my services.

There is no upper limit for numbers in an audience for displays in schools although we will require assistance from school staff for supervision during the hands on sessions especially in very large groups & of course ample space to hold all the children and able safety during handling activities

Each session (either morning or afternoon) costs a basic £80 (payable on day of display preferably) - a travel contribution is also charged and this will be calculated using the RAC Route Planner fuel cost calculator - based on a standard consumption/diesel vehicle & current cost of fuel.

Pricing is correct as of March 2018 but is subject to review each tax year end and any necessary revision during the year.
