Historic enquiry

This resource supports historic enquiry, using portraits as historical sources. It contains enquiry questions for students plus background notes for teachers.

Tudor Women

This resource explores each of the queens in their own right. It focuses on their achievements, personalities and struggles, rather than just as Henry’s wives.   

We aim to make resources that are inclusive of gender, ethnicity, disability and social background. We want to support teachers to challenge problematic narratives of people in the past.
