We welcome GCSE and A-level students looking at the Stuart period, Cromwell, and the English Civil War as part of their exam studies from across the UK. We can support learning on causes and events of the Civil Wars, the development of warfare during the 17th century, and the trial of Charles I and the arguments on either side. Cromwell is one of the more popular parts of British history studied on A-Level History curriculums, and we can offer a fresh perspective and support on many of the topics that students will examine as part of this course.

We offer a number of key advantages beyond learning in the classroom for post 16 students:

  • Inspiring students by getting to see real artefacts up close, and going beyond documentary sources studied in the classroom
  • The opportunity to discuss and debate events and themes with knowledgeable museum staff and volunteers
  • Have a session tailored to fit your needs and learning objectives

Our Sessions

Our standard sessions are included below. We can also tailor our sessions to fit your needs  according to which exam board you are teaching to, including OCR, AQA, Edexcel, and WJEC Eduqas, as well as to support your learning around Cromwell, Huntingdon’s history or the role of Museums, Heritage Management and Tourism. 

Ready to book?

Contact our Learning and Communities Officer at learning@cromwellmuseum.com or 01480 702216 to find our more information, discuss how we can meet your requirements, and book your session with us.

Virtual Sessions

We can offer many of our sessions as virtual sessions using video-conferencing. In these sessions, led by our expert staff and volunteers, we bring the Museum to you in your classroom, allowing your students to see original objects up close, meet civil war soldiers, and take part in fun and engaging hands-on activities. In short: all the exciting benefits of visiting us, but on your time, without travel costs, and in the safety of your school environment.

Please contact us if you are interested in having a virtual session with us. We are continuing to develop our virtual education programme, and will have more information up on our website when it is available.
