Teaching Remembrance Day

Join us as we once again host an interactive cross curricular Teaching Remembrance event for over 1000 young people in Key Stage 2.  


Together with Royal British Legion, students will take part in a range of practical workshops to help them develop new skills to support their personal and cultural development. Providing a wider understanding of history, citizenship, and literacy, these sessions will enable them to nurture a personal understanding of what Remembrance means to them.

About The Day

This fast-paced educational event will see students take part in both physical and creative activities unpacking elements of the year's themes as well as exploring the 150 acres of woodland and uncovering some of the stories behind the Memorials at the Arboretum. 


There will also be an opportunity to hear from serving personal and their own stories, opportunities and experiences they have had. 


For schools, this is a chance for students and teachers from across the region to come together and discover the wide range of skills and qualities that play a significant part in the understanding of service and sacrifice. 

Cost For Your School


The event is free to attend but places will be limited, and late cancellation may incur a fee.


In previous years we have also been able to offer schools bursaries to cover the cost of travel to this event. Further details on whether this is applicable for the 2024 event will be released in due course.
