Learn in an inspiring space

Supporting education is central to the ethos of Newport & District Agricultural Society, which owns and manages Chetwynd Deer Park.

The available space is ideal for many pursuits and already welcomes many schools and other young people’s organisations to make use of the site.

The grounds lend themselves perfectly to many activities which benefit either from the space or even the natural features of the landscape.

Whatever your teaching and learning needs, we have the ideal environment, out in the park or indoors, in our well-equipped lodge:

  • Photography
  • Art
  • Ornithology
  • Survival skills
  • Orienteering
  • Environmental Studies
  • Geology
  • Geography
  • Cross country

…and anything else you can learn in the countryside!
