Schools History Project Conference


​​​The 31st Schools History Project (SHP) Conference promises a better-than-ever mix of enjoyment, enrichment and inspiration. As always, the conference will provide a wealth of ideas and resources for teaching rigorous and engaging history at Key Stage 3, GCSE and A level 

What's happening?

Over three days in July, more than 250 delegates will attend the event, with a choice of over 25 workshops, allowing you to focus on the specific needs of your departments.

The conference also includes five plenary sessions from historians and history educators packed with ideas and inspiration for taking forward history in your school, including: 

  • 'Floating their boat': Helping low-attainers in history (Jamie Byrom)
  • Teaching Black Tudors: Bringing untold stories into the history classroom (Miranda Kaufmann and Jason Todd)
  • The Peterloo Massacre: Film and reality (Robert Poole)
  • Reading, scholarship and your history curriculum (Tim Jenner)
  • The importance of becoming ambitious with historical content at Key Stage 3 (Christine Counsell)

Other sessions include a Friday fringe which will be devoted to sessions from each of the Awarding Bodies, a Saturday fringe which will provide an eclectic mix of teaching ideas, resources and discussion, and the one-stop resources exhibition which provides a great opportunity to check out some great new resources and to talk to exhibitors.

You'll be able to attend five workshops (from a choice from over 25), led by some of the country's most inspiring
teachers and history educators. To find out more about the workshops available please click here. (INSERT PDF LINK)​
