School Visits

Newby presents endless opportunities for an inspirational educational visit. The ancient sculptures in the Statue Gallery and the interactive Zimbabwean Sculpture Workshops (from June) give wonderful scope for discovering the arts.

The woodland walk and gardens provide a wealth of material, while the house itself is a very special environment in which to explore form, colour, design and mathematical proportion as well as architecture and social history. During July and August, Matombo Zimbabwean Sculpture workshops are available free of charge for all ages – please ask.

Newby’s wonderful adventure playground is a fantastic place to let off steam with an amazing variety of experiences including the miniature railway. There is a large picnic area close to the coach park for lunch and if it is wet, we will do our best to provide undercover space.

We offer good facilities and accessibility for disabled visitors, with both motorised & manual wheelchairs available on FREE loan.  You are advised to book them in advance.

Downloadable Resources

In partnership with Education Consultant Jo York, we are now able to offer a full package of resources to support cross-curricular studies for key stages 1 & 2.  The learning pack is based around one of Newby Hall’s finest paintings, ‘The Grantham Children’ by Van Mytens, but offers ideas for studies in art, literacy, geography, history and social studies.
