The Sandford Award is an independently judged, quality assured assessment of education programmes at heritage sites, Cathedrals and museums across the British Isles. Now in its 40th year, sites can apply for the award every 5 years and, in 2018, the Learning Department received the Sandford Award for the 6th consecutive time!
