For Schools GCSEs/A-Levels
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
With enough notice, we can create a custom session for your class focusing on topics such as Huntingdon's history, Crime and Punishment (featuring the 17th century courtrooms in Huntingdon Town Hall), or the role of Museus, Heritage Management, and tourism. 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
What we offer:
On site and virtual workshops
Meet experts, examine real artefacts, debate historical controveries, and take the opportunities to ask all your burning questions about 17th century history. Our workshops can be delivered either on-site or virtually, and are great revision tools, in which students can get help with areas they may have difficulty in understanding and gain alternate perspectives on particular issues.
*NEW* Classroom videos
Our newest resources are a series of 'bite-sized' videos designed to support lessons on Oliver Cromwell and the British Civil Wars. In these short videos, our Curator explores topics including whether Cromwell was 'king in all but name', the importance of the Battle of Naseby, and perceptions and interpretations of Cromwell's legacy, all while using the objects in our collection as evidence. This resource is currently free - contact us to find out more.
