Schools are welcome at Rockingham Castle

A School Group visit

We welcome schools and adult education visits through the year.  

If you would like to receive an information pack containing all the information you require to plan a visit to the Castle please click on the 'email' link at the top of the page and provide us with your name, school name and address and we will dispatch a pack to you on the next working day. 

In order to make the planning & organisation of school visits easier we have produced a document - Hazard Information - which can be emailed or posted to you on request and a downloadable School Booking Form along with School Visit Information.  Bookings can be made by telephone or on line.  In the first instance please download the Schools Organisers Information 2014 document below. Please note we cannot accommodate school visits on Fridays.

To enhance your visit we have produced an audio visual of the "Castle Under Siege", which brings to life some of the key events in the Castles history had television reporting existed.  The film plays on a loop and can be viewed after your tour of the Castle.

We are able to offer a new Education Pack which comprises 5 different Teacher's Guides with photocopiable workbooks designed for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two children, depending on the type of visit and the topics you may wish to cover.  All the Teacher's Guides are National Curriculum referenced.  They include background information to enhance your tour of the Castle and surrounding area and are designed for use before, during and after your visit.

If you would like to order, please send an email via our website providing your name, address, telephone number and where you would like us to send the invoice.  Alternatively please telephone 01536 770240.

Below please find downloadable documents to assist with your visit.  We recommend a preliminary visit for teachers which provides an opportunity to view the Castle, grounds and Education Pack.
