Sandford Award Department

2018 Sandford Awards

The Sandford Award is an independently judged quality assured assessment of education programmes at heritage sites, museums, archives and collections, including historic houses, galleries, places of worship, gardens and landscapes. Owners and managers of sites where special provision has been made for visits for formal and/or informal education visitors are invited to apply for The Sandford Award of the Heritage Education Trust.

The Award is valid for five years from the date of issue after which all Award-holding sites are invited to apply for a full reappraisal of their educational programmes. 


Benefits for Entrants:

  • A ‘kite mark’ for high quality education provision which is recognised by schools and other education institutions across the United Kingdom
  • The opportunity to use your award to attract new visitors
  • A detailed consultancy report as part of the expert judging process, which you can use to effect positive change in your organisation
  • The opportunity to attend an award ceremony
  • National recognition among the heritage sector of the personal contribution of you and your staff, which will help to motivate the whole site to develop its good practice further
