Assessing the importance and value of historic buildings to young people

This is the report from a study to identify the importance and value of the historic environment to young people aged 14-16 (referred to here as 'teenagers'). It responds to a need to develop the interest in heritage among all children and young people. The study built upon innovative research in 2009 on links between teenagers' sense of place and the historic environment.

The study involved over 900 young people attending 21 state maintained schools along with 54 young people attending 7 Pupil Referral Units (PRUs). The schools and PRUs were carefully selected to ensure they were in areas with different catchment area characteristics and across different parts of England.
