WW2 School Trips
Ufton Court provide history and outdoor learning school trips for Schools across the South East.
Based in and around a Grade 1 Elizabethan Manor House, our school trips are 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.
Our aim is to inspire your class to develop a passion for history and the outdoors. We understand that all schools are different and so our learning style is very flexible and our teachers work hard to provide schools with individual programmes that meet their needs.
Our schools get sole use of their residential sites at night, whether it is our beautiful Manor House or our cosy woodland cabins. We also offer day visits and can run workshops in your school.
Why are Ufton Court great for School Trips and Educational Visits?
Your group will learn all about life in WW2. War is upon us and every family must do their bit for the country. Children will take part in skills and games typical of the 1940s, as well as learning about what would have happened when the Air Raid Siren sounded.
All residential visits will include a meal, set in a 1940s dance hall, where children can dress in costume. This will be led by Ufton staff and will include food and drink.
What activities are available during group visits?
Experience key skills during the 1940s, including willow weaving a tray for you to take away
Learn how to be self-sufficient through the 'Make-Do-Mend' movement, learning how to plait, sew on a button and make a rag rug.
What size groups do you cater for?
