Education at Browsholme

Nestled in the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire’s oldest ancestral home has something for everyone, and is a fascinating historic home to visit.Here at Browsholme we have a long established partnership with local schools, having welcomed school trips to come around Hall and Gardens over the years.

More recently we have decided to grow this relationship, and with the help of Lancaster University, composed a series of cross-curricular educational modules that take place across our extensive grounds.

A wonderful way to encourage 'real life' learning, our educational programme will get your pupils out of the classroom and into the world, while learning and loving every minute of it.

Modules and Activites

Pre March 2020 we were focusing on our educational modules, aimed at bringing schools on site to experience cross curricular lessons with sustainability embedded across the activities. In conjunction with Lancaster University, we developed ten activities which the pupils from different key stages could undertake, and were in the process of going on to live testing with local schools from east Lancashire. The core of the module was The Tree of Life, showing how an acorn can keep Browsholme going for hundreds of years.

Now that restrictions are lifted, we are back on course to welcome pupils on site in the Spring Term and have outdoor and indoor classroom space for them to use.

Sustainability and Well Being

As a small family business we give to our community and our team. Sustainability and wellbeing is embedded in our culture and ethos. Social history is brought to life by the continued involvement of the Parkers, now into the sixteenth generation where the children (Eleanor and Roland) have started to pick up the baton by contributing in their own way with enterprises such as short videos to engage our visitors and followers.
