Your students will have the opportunity to work with our experienced learning team in the comfort and familiarity of your classroom. 

We will use records, replicas, artefacts and hundreds of years of history to explore, discover and question the story of County Durham. 

Our workshops and activities are all curriculum linked and cover a range of subjects and themes.
