Summer Conference


SHP Summer Conference 2020

10-12 July 2020, Leeds Trinity University


It is with the deepest regret that we are announcing the cancellation of the Schools History Project 32nd Summer Conference, July 2020.

While we all hope that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic will have passed by mid-July, we cannot be certain and the safety of our delegates, presenters and the staff who make the conference work, has to be our first priority.

If you have booked and paid for a place, you will be refunded at the first opportunity. If you have any queries about this, please email

As Director, I would like to thank everybody who had expressed an interest in attending and most of all the brilliant and dedicated teachers, lecturers and others who were prepared to give up their time and energy to share their inspirational expertise in workshops and plenaries.

Rest assured, we are already thinking about the 2021 conference which, the situation allowing, will be the best yet.

In the meantime, we are in the initial stages of planning an online ‘mini conference’ for this summer. Details will follow as soon as they are available.

Furthermore, we are looking at ways in which SHP can support history teachers during these challenging times. We have some plans which are, at the moment, in different stages of completion. The first thing to keep your eyes out for is a national essay competition for primary and secondary students in collaboration with Professor Peter Frankopan, details of which will be appearing on the SHP website.shortly.

Finally, I would like to wish everyone good health and good luck over the coming weeks.

Yours faithfully,

Matt Stanford
