Leamington Editorial 29th Nov, 2023   0

THE BRITISH Motor Museum has been turned into a wheelie good place to learn.

A brand new education space called The Learning Hub has opened at the museum in Gaydon with the support of The Patrick Foundation.

The Learning Hub provides an inspiring environment for students and teachers and includes two new classroom style rooms as well as a larger communal area for larger groups, a space for hands-on and collaborative work and a place for lunch.

Julian Pritchard, of The Patrick Foundation, said: “The trustees of the Patrick Foundation are thrilled to see the Learning Hub open and welcoming schools and pupils to the museum. For nearly four decades The Patrick Foundation has been involved in providing an educational programme and location for local schools. However, as we begin to close our doors, we are proud to have provided funding for this new purposeful space, ensuring pupils are able to enjoy the best learning environment, experience, and facilities.”




Stephen Laing, head of collections at the British Motor Museum, added: “We’re delighted that the Patrick Foundation has generously supported the creation of The Learning Hub, a dedicated space for school children and college students of all ages, as well as community and specialist groups from all walks of life. Our learning programmes aim to inspire everyone and are at the heart of all the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust’s activities.”
