A special place to learn

Killerton’s experienced and enthusiastic team extends a warm welcome to all schools and education providers. We offer an award-winning education programme of facilitated and self-led sessions that encourage pupils to be active learners with enquiring minds. Our sessions and activities are designed to promote a range of key skills for learning. All sessions will extend pupils’ language and communication skills and enhance social awareness.

Seasonal learning programs

A visit to Killerton brings history to life by offering your children a fantastic chance to learn from hands-on experience, drama and role play, as well as to develop their language and social skills. At Killerton there are extensive areas of woods, parkland and open spaces for pupils to immerse themselves in the natural world and learn new skills.

During the autumn we offer an apple harvest learning program which includes a visit to traditionally managed orchards on the estate.
