AQA History: GCSE Study Session


We recently temporarily closed our doors to the public until further notice.

As a charity that receives no regular government subsidy, we desperately need your support, more than ever before.

Please donate any amount, small or large, so that we can continue to thrive in the future. You can also purchase a gift voucher to be redeemed against events when we reopen.


An introduction or revision session where students attend an interactive lecture and a guided tour of the theatre focusing on AQA* GCSE History exam requirements.

Information for your visit

All workshops can be tailored to cater for a range of Special Educational Needs and requirements. Detailed information can be found in our FAQs.

Please also read our FAQs for site specific information (directions, on-site food and beverage provisions etc)

Please note that English Lively Action Workshops can be added to the end of the GCSE History Study Day if you have students who would benefit from sessions in both subjects.
