The Essex Record Office offers sessions and resources for students of all ages. Details of what we can offer for primary and secondary schools and further and higher education can be found here.
From this page you can download free resource packs for use in your classroom. At the moment we just have two packs available but we hope to add more in the future.
We would love to hear what you think of our education resources – both what worked well and what could be improved – and what you would like to see us offer in the future. Please send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
