Footprints of Faith Walks

These are guided walks around Cambridge city centre suitable for children of primary or secondary school age. They are designed to help children learn more about the history of Cambridge and the influence of Christian thinkers. They were developed to support the RE curriculum and encourage cross-curricular links with other key subjects, in particular science and history. Many world-leading pioneers in scientific discovery and social reform have lived and worked in Cambridge over the centuries. Many were inspired by their faith, which the Footprints walks explore.

Types of walks

The walks have been created to explore the themes of Human Rights and Science and are split into KS1 or KS2.  Schools can book a guided walk at any time in the year.
