Schools

As teachers we know the importance of bringing history to life for students. Taking part in an ‘amputation’, being presented to a Queen, or studying an artefact are the experiences that can bring a lasting interest in history. It is possible to tie some of these visits in with other curriculum areas e.g. English, science or British Values. Save the cost of transport and the mountain of paperwork by bringing history to your school. 

Many of our presentations are suitable for schools, particularly-
