School Workshops

With our Heritage Lottery Fund funded project, New Perspectives, we are taking the archives on the road and into London schools!  Using the collection of the National Union of Women Teachers, free workshops are offered for classes from Key Stage 1-4 to explore social history through the archives.  Delivered by an Archive Education Officer, each workshop takes a hands-on approach and includes active citizenship; historical investigations; and visual, oral, and written activities to deliver engaging sessions linked to the National Curriculum.  

Workshops and activities are offered completely free of charge to schools and college groups; students at PRUs; youth groups; and visits from home educated children. We will help you plan your session in a way which meets your group’s needs.
