What makes us a great choice?

Each subject area is led by our trained Educational Facilitators and volunteers and has been carefully constructed to work in line with the National Curriculum covering key subject areas including history, geography, mathematics, literacy, citizenship, science and design.

Our aim is to harness the unique environment at Cogges Manor Farm and create interactive learning experiences, both inside and out, to inspire children of all ages. Children who visit are highly engaged by the hands-on elements of the programme, as well as by the diversity we offer within each half or one-day session.

The staff at Cogges Manor Farm feel passionately about educating and inspiring the next generations. We believe that our Schools Education Programme has something for everyone and we feel strongly about including all children in our sessions so that they feel excited and engaged with what they have just learned. Our sessions cover many aspects of the National Curriculum and if time is tight, many can be tailored to your needs.

We are open for school visits year round.

Testimonials

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for such a wonderful day. All the boys had the most amazing day and produced some excellent work to follow up our trip. The lady who ran the day was superb, she held their attention brilliantly and the pace of the trip was just right. I have been on several farm trips now but our day at Cogges was certainly the best I have been on.”

“A fantastic visit once again! The staff were amazing, the activities really appropriate and children loved it. See you next year!"

“It was a lovely trip, the children were wowed by how much they found out. The activities were engaging and exciting and we had lots of fun. Thank you to all the staff they were great and very helpful. We will definitely plan on coming back next year.”
