Residential History trips

A residential trip based around the study of one or more historical subjects is an excellent way to provide children with sessions that deliver education in a way that you may not be able to at school. On a residential history trip you can take advantage of learning experiences designed by qualified teachers and tailored to meet your specific objectives.

Allow your children to get hands on with history through creative and interactive learning, innovative and challenging workshops and historical activities that will get them thinking independently and better understanding methods of historical enquiry.

Our residential history trips below allow school children to spend time living as our stoneage ancestors of prehistory. Transform into Iron Age Celts and get instruction on how to construct a roundhouse or outmanoeuvre the Roman invaders during a reconstruction of historical battles. Investigate the lives of the Anglo Saxons. Construct Medieval trebuchets .Explore the Elizabethan Age by re-enacting crime and punishment, or learning about the great Tudor explorers while sleeping aboard a reconstructed Galleon!

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect the perfect historical residential workshop to visit your school.
