Let us bring the history to you!

Our dedicated Community Heritage Team visit schools across the county as part of our education service for schools. We can provide curriculum linked sessions on any aspect of Lincolnshire's rich history, as well as introductory sessions of national events and historic periods.

We use object-based learning in all our school visits, so pupils will get the chance to handle real artefacts and discover history firsthand.

Our worksheets can be adapted for any tailored focus your education programme or curriculum requires.

Our standard educational school visits are costed based on a standard half or full day visit. We can also develop and provide bespoke educational provision, individually costed, which are surprisingly affordable!

Depending on the project and its location, we can deliver one or a series of unique workshops in line with the project outline. Schools and students will also have an active role in the development and outcome of the project.

If appropriate, these can be shared with a wider online community through regular project updates posted on Heritage Lincolnshire Social Media pages.

Occasionally, through our own project work, we are also able to offer school’s workshops which are already funded and therefore free to book. To access these opportunities, simply sign up to our newsletter to hear about up and coming activities.

Enquire or book

Contact us to book a session, or discover more about our unique, hands-on, interactive education workshops, which are best suited to a class size of up to 30.  Larger groups can be accommodated, but may require some adjustment  to ensure every student has the opportunity  to engage and learn about and develop historical detective skills.

Please contact us to discuss any specific provision concerning group size, students with additional requirements and children with English as an additional language.

Work experience

Historians, archaeologists and heritage professionals all have to start somewhere!

In order to give our colleagues of the future a helping hand we offer exciting 1 and 2-week placements to students from Lincolnshire schools and colleges who are considering a career in heritage or archaeology.

In a typical week you might go on an archaeological dig, help with our after school club, be involved in planning or delivering events, visits to our historic sites, archiving, marketing, social media, visitor interpretation, and more!
