Schools

With over 30 years of experience in providing school visits we pride ourselves on the flexibility and variety of curriculum based KS1 & KS2 workshops that we offer.

Doddington Hall provides the perfect setting for workshop based learning. With a choice of 9 sessions based in the Hall, Ornamental and Kitchen gardens and the surrounding farmland, Doddington is ideal for inquisitive minds and children who love to explore.

  • Journey back in time
  • Discover Life at Doddington
  • Explore the Gardens and Learn about Herbs
  • Hunt the Veg in the Walled Kitchen Garden
  • Find out what the Rich & Poor ate in Tudor times
  • Nature Trail

Whether you are looking at life in Tudor or Victorian times or studying outdoor science, Doddington provides a host of learning opportunities. Our experienced education team will tailor each workshop to the age and abilities of the class, making it a busy, fulfilling day for children throughout their primary years.

All classes are encouraged to take an interactive tour of the Hall led by a costumed guide who will explore the house in character with the children. To this add your choice of workshops which can be discussed with our team to enable us to suit your numbers, curriculum and timings ensuring your class’s day runs as smoothly as possible. This programme has been supported by The Heritage Lottery Fund.

It is expected that a school specific risk assessment is carried out by a representative of the school prior to the children visiting. School visits are available March – October. The cost is £5.00 per child, accompanying teachers and adults are complimentary.
