We want to support your teaching, both in the classroom and when you visit one of our properties. Our range of teaching resources have been designed as part of a programme of work, linking what you learn at a property with pre- and post- visit classroom activities. Play one of our interactive online games, get hands-on with our handling collections or dress up in our costumes. We're continually developing our resources to link with the new curriculum and key stages.
English Heritage Teacher's Kits are free educational tools packed with everything you need to give your class a deep insight into the place you are visiting. Featuring historical information, suggestions for activities, and high-quality images, a Teacher's Kit is a comprehensive planning toolkit for group leaders.

Some of our historic places such as Stonehenge have activity sheets available for schoolchildren. Both a great way to keep your class entertained and an informative tool to enhance their understanding, these sheets can be found within the Teacher's Kits and mean your group get more out of the school visit experience.

We provide Hazard Information sheets for school groups, outlining in list form the key hazards for teachers to be aware of in order to ensure a safe and smooth-running visit, to assist in writing your own Risk Assessment. See our Hazard Information Sheet for Audley End House and Gardens as an example.
