Resource boxes for hire

Our resource boxes, with archive film at their centre, are designed to offer a range of primary source material to allow a class to conduct their own project over a number of weeks.

We currently have 2 boxes for hire; each uses a different film as its focus. They are:

(KS2&KS3) The Adventures of the Girl Pat – the story of a missing boat… a journey to the other side of the world… and how it came home
(KS3) A Moment in Time – comings and goings in 1930s Southampton and Paris Exposition 1937

We hire out boxes for a half term at a time, to allow the materials to be used as fully as possible during the course of the project. You can also combine your resource box with a visit to Hampshire Record Office (one half term’s hire and a behind the scenes tour for up to 10 students, 1.5hrs)

For further information about the content of the resource boxes, also prices, and how to book please download our information pack  Download Adobe Reader to view this PDF 1MB.

Group visits

We also welcome group visits from schools, academies and colleges, also teachers and student teachers, who would like to familiarise themselves with what archives can offer them in workshop sessions at Hampshire Record Office (up to 15 people).
