History

TrainThe History Centre in Chippenham is home to the Wiltshire and Swindon Archives and the Wiltshire Local Studies Library. Using these extensive collections the heritage education service provides a wide range of workshops and resources giving students the opportunity to carry out their own historical investigations. Visits to the History Centre provide students with the chance to work from original documents and visit behind the scenes at the Archive. All sessions at WSHC and in school are hands on and interactive. Workshops are suitable for students from KS2 to Further and Higher Education.
