When you and your family go on any visits or day trips, particularly on Mondays - Fridays during term time, be sure to ask if they will give you an educational/school discount. Many museums, galleries, theatres, parks etc, are willing to offer discounts, but you do need to ask.
Some examples are listed below:
For free entry to NT properties during term-time, apply for a yearly Education Group Membership (2017 price £43.25).
HE families are admitted free to properties. Bookings need to be made in advance & it is easier & often necessary to prove you are HE. Proof of HE can be by way of membership to EO, HEAS etc or other HE groups or sometimes with a National Trust Education Group Membership card if you have one.
HE families are eligible for Education rates during schools' term-time. (2016 price £5.50 per person)
Proof of HE is required. Families without valid proof must contact At-Bristol in advance in order to inform a Duty Manager.
More discounts are listed on the Educational Freedom website.
