The National Archives' education service has been awarded a Sandford Award for its work with school pupils. Our specialist staff reach 15,000 pupils a year, through workshops on site at The National Archives in Kew and videoconferences with schools across the country.

The Sandford Awards are awarded by the Heritage Education Trust, which recognises and promotes good practice in learning services within the historic environment and related collections.

Entrants for Sandford Awards are assessed by a panel of independent judges, including OFSTED inspectors, former headteachers, education consultants and education officers working in heritage properties.  The judges said of The National Archives:

'The programmes on offer are well researched, resourced and presented with activities that are designed to stimulate pupils' imaginations, engage their interests, help them learn of, from and about the past and to have fun.  The National Archives is a true treat.'
