Cambridge Mosque is very popular and heavily booked for organised visits and guided tours. Thus it is part of our activity to receive school visits as Islam forms part of a World Religion taught in state schools as part of the National Religious Curriculum.
This therefore presents the Cambridge Mosque with an opportunity to explain the many aspects of Islam to these students. These visits normally are organised on a prior appointment basis , whereupon they are given a tour of the whole Mosque premises, followed by a "Question & Answer" session. Some schools may bring their own work sheet of questions for their students to go through with our guide. Various simple leaflets and Islamic literature are presented to the students if and when the needs arise. Part of the tour will involve taking all the visitors to our exhibition Centre where we have plethora of topics for students and staff to engage with.
In addition to students from secondary schools the Cambridge Mosque also entertains similarly adult groups of visitors from a wide range of background such as Social Workers, Religious Education Teachers, Health Workers, Race Relation Officers, University Lecturers and Students, and Lay Visitors alike. To satisfy weekend demand the same service is provided.
