Ufton Court on the Road brings history and outdoor learning to your school, providing a unique learning experience run by Ufton Court staff. Our history workshops enable children to experience life from 60 to 6,000 years ago learning through action, artefacts, costumes and roleplay.
Our outdoor workshops bring bushcraft and forest skills to your playground complete with a forest tent. To find out more about each workshop, click the images below.
Our programme offers schools a full day made up of two workshops (for delivery to two separate groups) which are tailored around the curriculum. We recommend no more than 30 pupils in each group so that each can gain the most from interactive and hands-on learning.
Please see below the area where Ufton Court on the Road travels to, delivering workshops.
