Unique Stories, Curiosity in Nature, Inspired Learning

Learning at Harewood

Learning at Harewood is all about creativity, wellbeing and learning through direct experience. Harewood has plenty to offer across the curriculum and for all types of learners. Whether it’s the history of Harewood and its unique stories, the natural sciences or the joy of being outdoors.

Nurseries & Schools Programme

Our nurseries and schools programme caters for Early Years and Primary through to Key Stage 3 & 4, including home-educated groups. We also work with teachers to meet the needs of SEND groups or groups outside of mainstream education, making sure Harewood is accessible to all.

As well as our core workshops and tours, we also run special programmes which respond to our changing exhibitions and special events across the seasons.

If you can’t see what you are looking for, please get in touch as we are happy to discuss your ideas and develop something for you.

Workshop sessions:

Children learn best when they are active and doing!

Led by members of our learning team and specialist artists, our workshops link to different curriculum areas and give children first-hand experience of the Harewood Grounds and Gardens, Bird Garden and the House itself.

Workshops are 1 -1.5 hours long.

Tours and Talks:

Tours are available of the Bird Garden and the House, led by expert, friendly staff. These last approximately 45 minutes to an hour and can be adapted for different age groups.

Workshops and tours are for groups of 15 or under. Sessions can run simultaneously to accommodate whole or multiple classes.

Timings of workshops and tours can be planned for a time that suits you, although we recommend a 10.30am start for morning sessions and 12.30pm for the afternoon.
