THE NEW NATIONAL CURRICULUM – HOLDENBY IS READY FOR THE CHANGE – PLEASE CONTACT US WITH YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR IDEAS
Our Education Department is amongst the most prestigious in the country and are proud to announce they have been awarded their 7th consecutive Sandford Award, an award given by the Heritage Education Trust for continued excellence in education. Also awarded is a new award, the Frances Garnham Award given for the innovative way in which the education programme is delivered. They also hold an award for work with Special Needs children. .
Our awards recognise our innovative living history projects, where staff and pupils are in character for a range of hands on activities. All our projects marry the requirements of the National Curriculum with real aspects of Holdenby's history. The House, Grade I listed Gardens, 14th century Church and Estate are a perfect backdrop to the children's visit and are integrated into our education programme.
Our trained and costumed interpreters have years of experience, are sensitive and flexible to the children's educational needs. Teachers are invited to come for a pre-visit prior to the actual day to ensure that the project chosen satisfies their needs.
