The Engagement and Learning team are committed to increasing the awareness of archives and their potential for education, in an environment of collaboration, learning and fun. We provide an exciting range of free workshops suitable for Key Stages 1 to 4 and sixth form students, covering a broad range of topics, including history, geography, citizenship and literacy, following closely with education standards, such as the National Curriculum.

The educational workshops give schools opportunities to conduct in-depth investigations into topic areas that combine local and national history and to use this research to inspire creative activities. Skill development opportunities include communication through synthesising and presenting information by writing for the web and digital. Thinking skills, analytical, and critical thinking skills from working with primary and secondary historical sources. Creative skills from creative writing inspired by historical sources.

All workshops are offered free of charge and must be booked in advance.
