Scruton Station Heritage Education Programme 2017

During 2017, we will be offering an exciting programme of school visits for KS1 & 2 pupils at Scruton Station. Dressing up in period costumes, pupils will have the opportunity to experience what life was like on this busy country station during the First World War. They will meet some of the different characters using the railway including soldiers, nurses, farmers and schoolteachers, as well as the station team, who kept trains running from dawn until dusk. Pupils will also take part in a series of interactive curriculum-linked activities, which provide the opportunity to learn more about how the railways worked, who used them and how, and where you could travel to by train, a century ago.

Visits will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from May to July 2017. For further details of the programme click here
