The classroom away from school
National Trust properties around the North Coast offer some of the finest field locations in the country. We have two great programmes for schools at Downhill Demesne and Hezlett House. They're suitable for key stages 1 and 2 and fit into the National Curriculum 'the world around us'.
Discover Downhill woodland
Pupils investigate the woodland area at Downhill through hands on activities and decision making exercises. They take part in mini-beast studies and examine the other creatures that live in the woods. The history of Downhill is also told through funny stories about the crazy Earl Bishop who once lived here.
Hezlett House - a home from the past
Children can visit dressed in Victorian costume to experience what life was really like for a Victorian child working and living at Hezlett House. The programme includes a role play, tour of the house with real stories from this era. Pupils will play Victorian games, make a craft and plant their vegetable seeds to bring home with them.
Education Group Membership
Education Group Membership of the National Trust gives your whole school free admission to all National Trust sites for a year, no matter how many pupils your school has.
