Plan your trip
All you need to know about planning your school trip or visit.
To avoid disappointment we advise booking as far ahead as you can.
Autumn 2021- Summer 2022
All workshops are £6 per pupil.
All teachers and adults are free.
This is in addition to entry, which is free if your school has National Trust Education Group Membership.
If you are Buckinghamshire school (excluding Milton Keynes), you may apply to the Rothschild Foundation’s Schools Access Fund. Grants from this fund can cover the costs of your trip, including transport, up to £750. There are eligibility criteria, but please find out more by following the link below.
Education Group Membership
Membership entitles your whole school to free entry to all NT properties when visiting as a school group, for a year. The cost depends on the number of children on your school roll:
Under 50 pupils – £50.00
51-100 pupils – £80.00
101-200 pupils – £95.00
201-500 pupils – £100.00
Over 500 pupils – £120.00
Tertiary field study – £150.00
Membership is much better value than buying one-off entry, which is £14 per adult and £7 per pupil.
The best way to arrange membership is to call the National Trust directly on 0344 800 1895.
