Report on the 2022 Schools Conference

Teachers’ comments after the June 2022 conference.

‘I would certainly participate again if it was offered with the next Year 12 cohort.’ 

‘Good range of topics. Always good to have the key players covered.’

‘Please can I pass on my thanks for an excellent online education day today. The lectures were all stimulating, relevant and beneficial and my 40 students got an enormous amount out of the day as a whole.’

‘They [the speakers] were excellent. A really good mix representing the key people/ aspects of the course. ‘

‘The focus on personalities worked well. The Wars of the Roses in an era of personal monarchy suits this approach and matches with how I teach it.’

All really engaging and well-structured and organised.’

‘It went really well and had a great impact on the students. They [the students] were impressed by the level of knowledge shown by the speakers, they felt privileged to be in their company.

A fabulous set of speakers.’

‘It was hugely beneficial for our students and a very enjoyable day all round for students and staff alike. We would certainly wish to take part in the future and appreciated it being online for both costs and organisational reasons.’

‘We really enjoyed it and the sources were absolutely fantastic, it has really set a number of the students up ready for their coursework.’

‘The focus on source work was particularly beneficial. We look forward to next year’s event!’
