The Experience

For Schools - We Can Offer...

An authentic village schoolroom, opened in 1849, closed in 1913 and still almost unchanged, with some of the original desks, slates, coal fires and oil lamps.

A present day class of 30 pupils can have a first-hand experience of Victorian education, in costume and in role. The day is run by ‘Miss Elisabeth Squire’, the Sevington schoolmistress and her sister ‘Miss Hannah Squire’.

Most schools arrive around 10.00am and leave at 2.00pm but every visit is tailored to meet the requirements of the particular group.

For Adults - Minimum 8


  • Miss Squire and her sister Miss Hannah are at home to visitors by appointment.


  • You will be shown round the schoolroom where Miss Squire will give you a sample of her teaching methods and you can explore the treasures on show. The visit includes a tour of the kitchen, washhouse and garden, before taking tea with the sisters in the parlour.


  • This unique experience costs just £6 per person.
