History School Workshops and Outreach Programmes

Bring historical school trip to your classroom

Curriculum linked school history workshops are available for a wide range of topics and historical periods. The cost of a school trip is not insignificant. As schools tighten their belts and parents are more reluctant to sign those all important permission slips, venues are adapting to give you the opportunity to host a workshop visit from them. Outreach workshops benefit schools and children who cannot afford the time or expense of a traditional school trip, by developing ways for you to bring their knowledge and expertise into your classroom.

Lasting anywhere from an hour to a full day, skillful education teams can deliver exciting and engaging history workshops. A few of our favourites include constructing a round house in the playground, and Skype a viking! The benefits associated with school workshop visits include not having to arrange and pay for transport, the children not having to bring along a packed lunch, and no need for risk assessments! You could even team up with another nearby school to reduce the cost further.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect the perfect Historical Workshop workshop to visit your school.

School History Workshops

Getting school children to really understand and get enthusiastic about events and periods in history can be difficult, especially at Key Stage 1 and 2. Trips to visit museums or stately homes can really help, but not all schools can afford the time or expence, especially if they do not have anything suitable close to the school. Outreach workshops really come into their own by bringing history into the classroom in an engagine and inspiring way.
