Services for Schools

Murton Park is home to the award winning Danelaw Centre for Living History. Danelaw offers a range of educational services to schools at Key Stages 1 and 2. The award winning team run a range of pre-booked study days for groups of up to 60 children here on the site, or in your school.

We offer a range of period specific, hands-on activity days, all structured to offer a range of fully inclusive learning experiences.

We are proud of our status as a Learning Outside the Classroom Q badge holder and are current holders of two Sandford Awards for Excellence in Heritage Education.
