At Ufton Court we offer day and residential programmes for nursery children through to secondary school students. Our focus is on living history, the environment and personal development, all programmes are designed to meet the individual needs of each school by our qualified teachers.
Our trips are based in the house and grounds of Ufton Court, a Grade 1 Elizabethan Manor House set within 16 acres of historical grounds and woodland. The rich environment combined with specialist teachers enable Ufton Court to offer a unique approach to education, teaching children in new and imaginative ways which enrich their learning and their lives. At Ufton Court the emphasis is on hands on, creative and interactive learning.
