Education Opportunities

St Michael’s Church and the surrounding countryside offer unique opportunities for learning and development, for schools, home educators, uniformed organisations, and other groups of young people.

The main body of the church offers a flexible indoor learning space, whilst outside there are rich educational resources to explore, including:

  • The outline of a lost medieval village
  • An Iron Age hill fort
  • A source of the River Aln
  • The historic Salters Road
  • A rich variety of flora and fauna

A selection of KS 2 activities based in and around St Michael’s, created by Wilderness Schooling, is available to download.

Facilitated Visits

Wilderness Schooling is an education programme delivered by North East Wellbeing, covering the core curriculum in Maths, Science and English, and using the outdoors as a classroom. Their experienced educators can facilitate education events at Alnham as well as other locations.

Northumberland National Park also delivers a range of education sessions for schools, within the National Park. These can be based at Alnham if required.

Hiring St Michael’s

Following its restoration, St Michael’s Church now offers an intimate and cosy setting for a range of events. This inspiring and versatile space is perfect for meetings, receptions, workshops, talks and concerts.

We would like to encourage more groups to use the church, so if you’re looking for somewhere a little different to hold your special event, why not consider St Michael’s?

To find out more about hiring the church, and the facilities available, please contact the Parish Administrator by email or by phoning 07813 169861.
