Schools & Colleges


We welcome every opportunity to make contact with your school or college.  When the new centre opens in 2019, a Schools and Education Programme will be a major part of our work and, hopefully, a great resource for you!

What you can do now


* Sign up for SCHOOL NEWS

* Read the Peter Pan Story at school

* Request a talk for your school about JM Barrie’s time in Dumfries

* Request a visit to Moat Brae for your school. Our new booking system will open in January 2019 but we are now running a waiting list to take requests for visits from Term 4 (Summer Term) 2019

* Inspire your pupils through the story of JM Barrie in Dumfries

* Create a Peter Pan-themed school project

* Get in touch with us, we may be able to help bring your project to life and to share ideas across all areas of the curriculum.

* Raise funds for Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust –  use your creative and enterprise skills to hold a fun day in aid of PPMBT

* Share with us your project ideas and what we can do to support your work – we can feed your ideas into our planning/design process and future activity plans

Peter Pan’s shadow left him and had an adventure in Wendy’s house. We imagined our shadows sneaked off when we were sleeping and had an adventure. Come read all about it…..
