Teaching Resources for those teaching about the Victorians

For many school children today, a trip to a Victorian School is a memorable experience that they will recall for many years to come. It is a great way to learn how things used to be. We have put together a whole range of things that can be used to enhance the experience. Not all schools are able to visit a real Victorian School or a created school, so using some of the Victorian things found on this site you can put together a Victorian School experience at your own school. We also offer a visit from a "Victorian" teacher, who can come to your school and show you Victorian memorabilia, and teach about Victorian Schooling. This is the perfect activity for a Victorian Day.

Information for those studying Victorian life

We have also tried to include a good selection of material about the Victorian period and this will grow in the course of time. You can use this to explore and study for yourself. The Victorian era was a fascinating time and we are sure you will enjoy learning about it.

Can you help us?

We need artefacts and materials that can be used for teaching purposes, to be loaned to schools. Can you help us? Here are a few of the things we are looking for: school classroom items from Victorian times to WW2, including blackboard and easel, blackboard rubber, teachers desk, pupil's school desk, small equipment, pens, inkwells, books, etc., posters, ephemera. We are also looking for a magic lantern and slides, attendance medals, Victorian and old coins, kitchen and laundry artefacts, milk churn, dairy items, washing equipment. Old school photographs, samplers, toys. We have a small budget for these items, and you can be assured that they will be used for educational purposes. Please email us or phone: details here.
