School Visits Stansted Park

Stansted Park for Schools

A beautiful stately home set in fantastic grounds; a wonderful educational resource on your doorstep.

Stansted Park is a friendly stately home in acres of beautiful grounds. The extensive servant’s quarters and grand state rooms make it a fascinating place to learn about how life has changed over the last 100 years. In addition, the unique Chapel, the yew tree maze and beautiful arboretum with over 40 species of trees allow for wider curriculum learning.

We have been awarded the Quality Badge for Learning Outside the Classroom for our educational services (2017). We have a range of curriculum based workshops linked to History, Art, Literacy, Science and Religious studies. All our workshops include hands on activities such as: rag-rug making, sewing and simple knitting, weighing, measuring and food preparation using traditional kitchen equipment, examining ‘mystery objects’ from the past, playing toys and games from a bygone age, making lavender bags……..as well as servants’ chores!

We welcome visits from school and college groups of all ages and abilities to Stansted Park from mid-January until the Autumn half-term. 

We are easily accessible for coaches and sign posted from the A3 (M) J2 for Emsworth (south) and A27 at Havant (north) within easy reach of Portsmouth and Chichester.We are a 45 minute walk through the grounds from Rowlands Castle railway station.For more details of our workshops, download the leaflet from the bottom of the page. 

Indoor and outdoor picnic facilities are available for pre-booked school groups. We give all children free leaflets, postcards and a free re-admission ticket so they can return with their family for a visit.

Call 023 9241 2265 or email enquiry@stanstedpark.co.uk to enquire and please check our diary before booking your transport.  We welcome a pre visit by teachers to discuss your specific curriculum needs and how we can make the best of your visit here.
