Amazing workshop, very organised and professional. (January 2020 - Primary)

The team at the Royal Armouries are very welcoming and enthusiastic in delivering their workshops. They were supportive during the planning process and met with us during our previsit to ensure we had everything that we needed. Their workshops were tailored to meet the needs and curriculum of our children and the children enjoyed the immersive elements of joining the Roman army and being told the story of Boudicca.

The trip itself was fantastic and the activities/workshops etc planned were linked well with our Inquiry work. (October 2019 - Primary)

Really well organised and engaging day for the students. It allowed for them to have a hands experience of the tactics, formations and armour worn in 1066. It catered for the exam board Edexcel and the questioning enabled students to relate to what they had seen and completed in the classroom. (October 2019 - Secondary)
