We are here to help

Taking on the role of teacher can be daunting. Especially when the education programme in the UK has changed since the last time you stepped into a classroom.

Don't panic! During this time of extreme changes in society we are here to support.

We are producing a range of history based activities to help you and support your 'students' learning. To make our activities unique, where possible, we will be linking them to the history of Alnwick Castle and the Percy family.

If you have a topic you would like us to cover let us know by email education@alnwickcastle.com.

We would really appreciate your feedback on the activities we have put together for you. Once you have completed one or all of the topics please complete the short survey by clicking on the link provided. Your feedback is very much appreciated.
