English Heritage, Heritage Schools WWI package

Working in collaboration, The English Heritage ‘Heritage Schools Programme’, Archives+, People’s History Museum and Manchester Guided Tours put together two Manchester and World War One Activity Day Programmes for schools.  Activities were suitable for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 students and took place in the centre of Manchester.  The days were available from September 2014 to February 2015.  Please look on our Heritage Schools WWI webpage for more information.


We have World War I displays in our main galleries that groups can visit.  The Learning Team produced self-led resources to be used by school groups and community groups when they visited the exhibition A Land Fit For Heroes.  You can still download the World War I Learning resources to use with your group.

  • Many of our sessions are suitable, or can be adapted, for learners with special needs.  For further information or to book a session, please use the Learning enquiry form to contact the Learning Team or call 0161 838 9190.

The exhibition was supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
