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.
In our Tudor programme, your children have been sent to Ufton Court by a Justice of the Peace in Berkshire, to investigate the ‘strange goings on’ at the residence of Lord and Lady Francis Perkins. There are rumours of strange goings on and secret Catholic things happening here. As local Petty Constables of the parish of Ufton Nervet, your children’s legal duty is to investigate these claims, find evidence of the claims and consider what might be happening here.
Our Tudor narrative will allow your children to experience life and culture, as it would have been at Ufton Court in the 1500s. Whether it be for three days or one, your children will experience drama and fun in the activities that they do with us, all of which promote historical understanding, teamwork and problem solving.
- To appreciate the effects of religious tensions in Tudor times
