This section contains information about Archive Education Services at Durham County Record Office
Welcome to the Learning Zone, our dedicated site for teachers and students.
Our online resources cover a range of topics, are closely tied to the National Curriculum and include teachers’ notes and explanations of the sources used.
Visits to the Record Office are a great way to add depth and interest to any topic. Every visit is individual and tailored to your specific needs.
We are always willing to come out to schools with copies of our documents. These sessions often prove a good alternative where a visit to the Record Office is not practical.
Resources for schools
Our new resource packs, covering all 5 Key Stages, include lesson plans, whiteboard activities, and laminated copies of documents.
We also have a range of costumes and traditional toys to support activities in our school workshops.
