Sutton House is an award-winning institution for education and learning. Family learning here takes parents and their children into a new environment and encourages them to learn together.

Family learning at Sutton House

Our programmes place a special emphasis on developing core skills in literacy and maths in early years children. They also introduce their families to Sutton House as a place to enjoy and play. We have around 4,000 school children discovering Sutton House every year.

Film project with the over-55s group

This term, the over-55s captured Sutton House's stories on film. The film project with the over-55s group aims to explore a selection of the events and people of Sutton House through visual storytelling. The workshops focus on collage illustration, model-making and photography for stop-frame animation. This video is an example of the group's work.
