Sutton Hoo is an estate set in 260 acres of heathland, pine forest and grassland. At Sutton Hoo they offer a wide variety of formal learning and informal education programmes. Their aim is to engage and become a resource for not only local schools, but also schools that are unable to visit the site due to geographical distance or budgetary constraints; they offer this through their remote learning programme. They are fortunate that Sutton Hoo has a connection to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time – the Anglo Saxon Royal Burial Ground; the Anglo-Saxon topic features in the KS1/2 National Curriculum for England.
The Sutton Hoo story is shared through many different educational resources that are available to teachers and students of all key stages. Activities on site include self-led activities, guided tours, replica handling and various hands-on archaeological activities such as Archaeological Detectives. Educational groups can discover the wider landscape on the many trails or escape into the woodland to take part in nature themed activities such as bug hunts, tree trails and footprint trails.
Educational groups can purchase Educational Group Membership. Alternatively educational groups can pay £7.10 per child (accompanying adults free). Some guided activities such as Archaeological Detectives and Guided tours are an additional £2.00 per child
