Extending the Programme

Even schools not directly involved in our Heritage Schools programme can benefit from the resources developed, including case studies of activities and projects, and regional conferences and workshops.


The commemoration of the First World War is a focus for activities in the 2014-2015 academic year, and the heritage schools have worked with local partners on a variety of projects. Many schools have produced films of their work, which you can see via our Heritage Schools Vimeo page.

Manchester school children found out from veterans how the two world wars changed their area, and created a memorial.
