We believe that students assimilate new knowledge best when they are involved in interactive, creative learning and during the day we aim to immerse them in the history and aura of the Early Mediaeval, or Dark Age, era. We can bring history to life in a way that no amount of teaching or reading is able. Typically, teachers report to us that after a visit by us, their students discover a new excitement in learning history and not just our period.

We offer a comprehensive package specifically tailored for schools based on the Key Stage Two ‘Invaders and Settlers’ syllabus. We can tailor the package to suit individual requirements so no school visit is likely to provide precisely the same experience as another. We can supply a single re-enactor or a small group and can be sited indoors or outside depending on your requirements (and the weather).

On booking us you will receive access to our Education pages which contain valuable resources and practical activities for teachers to use with their classes both before and after our visit.

Because we are a non-profit making group our fees are extremely competitive. We can provide a quote on request based on your requirements. You can discuss your requirements with our Education officer, who will tailor a package to suit your particular needs.

If you Home School then please don’t feel that this is an opportunity that your children can’t also experience. We have previously worked with groups of Home School parents to create affordable packages that suits their needs as well. So please get in touch.
