School Visits

Utilising the latest technologies alongside an interactive approach to the rooms, collections and gardens, Kelmarsh Hall offers pupils and students across the key stages a unique opportunity to enjoy a full sensory experience of a modern heritage property as well as valuable insights into what life was like for those who once worked and lived at the property.

Tablet devices help pupils to interpret the newly recovered below stairs rooms in detail and augmented reality will bring the spaces to life with period characters ‘appearing’ to tell their story. A range of ‘have-a-go’ activities such as doing the laundry and baking provide exciting learning opportunities for all stages of the learning journey.

If you have a specific subject area that you would like to enhance and explore in a diverse historic setting, then contact us today to find out more.Pre-visit appointments are available upon request.

Visit Days & Study Sessions

A collaboration between Kelmarsh Hall and the University of Northampton over the 2018/19 academic year will see young people in local Sixth Form participating in our new Enhanced Study Program. This will be a three-way, project-based course that aims to break down some of the barriers to further study while enhancing a range of key skills for humanities and research.

With one day at your school, one day at Kelmarsh Hall and a further day at the Univsersity, students will gain a much clearer insight into the demands and rewards of Higher Education while completing a project that may link to their Extended Project Qualification. Contact us today, to find out more.

University Placements and work experience are also available at Kelmarsh Hall, by arrangement. Contact your course provider for further details and to arrange an informal visit.

Kelmarsh Hall will be working with Northampton College this autumn, to offer young people work experience in a Heritage and Events setting. To find out more, contact the Careers Department at Northampton College.
