Education at Tatton Park

Social Stories

We appreciate that visiting a large site like Tatton Park can be a little overwhelming, especially for those who may find new environments daunting. We have developed a number of 'Social Stories', which explain what you can expect from a visit along with a selection of helpful photographs. We recommend that children are shown these in advance of their visit, so that they are better prepared for the day.

Healthy Eating

We understand that Healthy Eating is an important part of the school curriculum and we have produced this resource pack as a starting point for teachers. It contains lots of important information, suggested activities and links to a range of documents that support lesson planning. 

Please note that we will be offering 'Field to Fork' themed workshops on site from September, which link to the key themes in this document and extend learning outside the classroom.

World War One

'Tatton to the Trenches' is a comprehensive resource pack for teachers, which supports learning about World War One and the local area. Many Tatton employees, from footmen to foresters, volunteered to fight in the trenches. Explore the experience of Tatton soldiers during the Great War. Why did they join up to fight? Where did they serve? Learn about the life of a British soldier in the trenches. What sort of jobs did they have? What did they wear and what did they eat? Find out about the medals they were given and why. Learn more about women’s contribution to the war effort and about the forgotten wartime refugees in Cheshire.
