Each lesson has been carefully designed to engage children with educational and exciting hands-on activities, such as making models and artefacts, role play, drama, and games.

The creative activities are of a very high standard compared to other history or science workshops. In spite of this the price is lower than average, because I work alone and design all the resources myself. Also travel costs are low because I don't travel very far from Manchester (see map).

Workshops last a full day and take place mainly in the classroom. I am a former history teacher with an MEd and an MSc in child psychology (read my CV). The fee is £249 for school workshops (the tour of Manchester costs 225). The lessons are fully compatible with the new curriculum, and are always being updated and improved.


Follow the links to the left for details, as well as photos of the activities and reviews from teachers and children. Please note that due to the challenging nature of the creative activities, some of the workshops may be too difficult for classes of lower ability (read more here).

You can now read the whole of my novel, Marathon, on this website. I wrote it in 2009 and self-published it. It is a story about two boys and their father who were in the battle of Marathon, and is suitable for older children.
