Why visit Talbot House with your school?

  • Visit one of the rare authentic places: Talbot House is one of the very few places that survives from during the Great War. It oozes authenticity and offers a unique experience. We can assist you through our educational resources and the Talbotousian School Brochure to make your visit an unforgettable one.  
  • GCSE & Subject relevance:
    • Literature: Rev. Tubby Clayton left us countless inspiring Tales of Talbot House which can be used today during a visit, either through our educational resources or by booking a Tales of Talbot House Story Tour. 
    • Medicine & Mental Health: the new permanent exhibition offers a great insight into the Casualty Clearing Stations at Mendinghem. Our workshop on the medical evacuation & surgical treatment goes a step further still. But the whole ethos of Talbot House is that it was  / is a heaven on hell where many a man came to find a taste of normal life and the courage to go back out to the trenches. It played a vital role in the mental wellbeing of the soldiers. 
  • End a tour on a happy note:  By visiting Talbot House as a final stop, you don't just show the students the other side from the trenches, but also offer them the unique experience which the men would have had. When you enjoy a cup of tea, sing along to the piano, relax in a comfortable chair, play a game of chess or have your lunch in our green garden, you forget about the war and experience as the House comes to life. 
  • Become part of the family: Through the Talbotousian Schools, we offer you the chance to develop a unique bond with the House, its history and its values. Many schools have been visiting us for years and we would like to welcome them into our Talbot House family.
