We deliver a range of education sessions covering aspects of geography and history with cross curricular links in some sessions. Our programme follows the national curriculum with the local area as a focus.
Our Local Studies sessions generally begin with a classroom introduction, followed by field work in the local area.
Cost for a half day session £110 for Hammersmith and Fulham local authority schools or £125 for schools from other boroughs and private schools.
We frequently work with secondary schools on project work focusing on local and environmental issues. Phone us for a chat to see how we can help with your project.
Fulham Reach: Changing urban land use over time
Fulham Reach provides an excellent case study of an area of change; pre-industrial market gardens, riverside wharves and factories in the 18th and 19th centuries, post-industrial decline and then waterfront redevelopment. Students use direct observation, maps, field sketching and photographs to investigate the processes which have shaped this area.

Victorian Industrialisation in Hammersmith
An introduction uses maps and photographs to trace the changes which occurred in Hammersmith during the 18th and 19th Centuries. This is followed by a trail which visits important local sites and highlights features of the period.
Links to key stage 3 History.
Cultural Heritage of Shepherds Bush Market
A tour of the market where students will learn about the history, changes and cultural influences. The aim is to discover how the market started off as a traditional London street market and has evolved into an ethnically, culturally and socially diverse shopping experience in West London, reflecting how our city is developing and growing culturally today.
Suitable for upper KS2 and KS3 History and Citizenship.
