Educational visits

Archives are excellent resources for providing learning experiences for children and teachers.

Using your local archive to research different topics and/or places can help spark the imagination and really make a subject come to life. 

By discussing the value of different information sources pupils can learn new skills and carry out their own research.

A visit to the archives can offer cross-curricular learning opportunities.

We can help with:

  • chronological awareness
  • historical knowledge and understanding
  • interpretation of history
  • historical enquiries
  • organisation and communication

We welcome individual or group visits from teachers and/or pupils. We welcome the opportunity to work with teachers to help create packs of resources for use in the classroom.
