“There is no better way for students to develop a personal connection to the First World War than through visiting the former battlefields 100 year on. Sign up today and join one of our free tours in 2018 and be part of the national commemoration of the First World War. On our tours the students will have the opportunity to interact with a variety of different historic sites including battlefields, memorials, cemeteries and museums, participate in remembrance ceremonies, and record, reflect and share their own experiences. We also offer a number of English Literature and the First World War tours to schools, which are designed to support those teaching or studying English.
One teacher and two students from every state funded secondary school in England are able to book onto one of our free battlefield tours to the Western Front. All our tours will be accompanied by one of our UCL National Education Co-ordinators as well as an experienced battlefield guide accredited by the Guild of Battlefield Guides. Our itineraries are designed to build on classroom learning and to provide opportunities for students to actively pursue meaningful historical enquiries, or look in far greater depth at the literature of the war. Each tour will be tailored to enable you to visit sites that relate to your region or locality, and where possible, individually researched graves.”
