SHP’s annual summer conference – 9-11 July 2021

We are already looking forward to our summer conference 2021. Based on the feedback from this summer’s conference, we are hoping to take a blended approach, offering the History Teacher Festival experience alongside a pared back online option for those who prefer that. Watch this space for updates, follow us on Twitter or sign up for our newsletter to keep abreast of developments.
