Archive Education Service – bringing history alive for students
We welcome visits from school and academy groups, colleges and teacher groups and wherever possible our sessions will be tailored to your locality or curriculum requirements.
For primary groups we offer a choice between tailored sessions on your own local study projects or workshops based on National Curriculum subjects.
Older students will be encouraged to work as real historians and be taught the skills to further their research in the public search room.
Teachers and support staff can also book CPD sessions that will familiarise them with what the Record Office can offer, plus resources and suggestions for teaching a range of subjects, including history or geography.

To commemorate 100 years since the beginning of the First World War in 2014, we are running workshops for school and project groups. If you are researching the War in your locality or more generally get in touch with us to see how we might be able to help.
