History at Leicester

Producing resources for schools

If you can involve local schools in your project, and capture the pupils’ imaginations, they may develop an interest in history and heritage that will stay with them for life. Both primary and secondary schools may be interested in learning about your project, and perhaps about becoming involved. Although your approach will need to be adapted for different age groups, it can generate rewards for everyone.

This guide gives advice and tips on:

  • Defining your target audience
  • Planning activities
  • Developing activities
  • Approaching a school
