Teachers! We need you!

Would you like your students to engage with exciting primary resources, such as this fifteenth-century Nuremberg Chronicle?

Please read our Teacher Information Sheet

With funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and The Baptist Union Newington Court Fund, we would like to see more people from a wider cross section of society using The Angus. We aim to help people engage with the heritage of the nation and the Baptist denomination, taking advantage of the true value of this wonderful collection.
We would like teachers to be involved both in the development stage and the testing of new educational resources. We will be creating National Curriculum Resources for Key Stage 3 and 4, covering subjects such as: 

·         The Victorians and non-conformists
·         Trade in the Edwardian period
·         Colonialism
·         The Slave Trade 
·         Religious liberty and tolerance
We will also be offering the opportunity for year 10/11 and A-Level students to gain first-hand experience using the archive. We would like to foster the students’ curiosity, helping them to develop independent study skills which are vital for university.  

Cultural Partnership Opportunity
The recent review of Cultural Education in England revealed the importance of schools making links with cultural organisations. Such partnerships offer students the opportunity to take part in academically and socially enriching activities outside of the classroom. We would like to work with teachers and schools to provide accessible and inspiring learning experiences within the library and archive setting. If you would like to discuss the possibility of forming a partnership with The Angus, please contact our Learning and Participation Officer, Katie Pearce, on:
