Services For Schools

Since 1992 the museum has played host to a unique Living History Project designed to provide hands-on experiences for (mainly) primary children. Based on the principle ‘I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand’, the idea behind the project is to introduce a practical element to history teaching.

Danelaw offer a variety of educational services linked to the curriculum. We were one of the first organisations nationally to be awarded a Learning Outside the Classroom quality mark, and were awarded  Sandford Awards for excellence in heritage education in 2010 and again in 2015.

We offer a range of period specific, hands-on activity days at the Danelaw Centre for Living History using the specifically constructed period sites set in and around the museum grounds. The days are all structured to offer a range of fully inclusive learning experiences and cater for groups of varying sizes.

Please follow the links on the Services for Schools tabbed menu to find out more about our range of services, contact us via our enquiry page or just drop us an e-mail for an informal chat.
