Learn with the Lords Online is open to all students aged 7 to 18 from UK based schools. Teachers can book a session in November 2022 -February 2023 below.

We run Learn with the Lords Online sessions for UK based Home Education Groups. We run two sessions per half term. The first for students aged 7 to 11, and the second for students aged 12 to 18. Parents or group leaders can sign up for our next sessions on Friday 7 October 2022. Please note that you will be joined by other Home Education groups in the sessions.

We ask for a minimum group size of 10 young people in all Learn with the Lords Online sessions.

How do the sessions work?

You will connect with the Lord and Baroness via a Microsoft Teams video call, which can be accessed via a browser.

School groups will need:

  • A laptop or desktop connected to a large screen with speakers, such as an interactive whiteboard or large projector screen
  • A working webcam and speakers, so pupils and your Baroness/Lord can see and hear
  • To complete a test Microsoft Teams call the week before their session, organised by our team

Home Education groups will need:

  • A laptop or desktop, preferably with webcam. To access on a phone or tablet you will need to download the free Microsoft Teams app.
