Our passion is outdoor education and learning for life

Norman Court CIC is an outdoor education and activity centre set on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border. As a Community Interest Company (CIC) Norman Court is not for profit.

All the money generated through our activities goes back into educational activities and securing our site for future young people.

Our manor house with its beautiful and extensive grounds and facilities is nestled within 45 acres of woodland. It also provides the location for all of our services.

A brief history of the site

The manor consisting only of about 120 acres in the 13th century was gradually enlarged over time. A new house consisting of a modest centre block with courtyards on the north-east and north-west corners, with stables and a coach-house, was built after 1752 on a more elevated site.
