The Schools History Project believes that helping children and young people to understand themselves in time is a vital part of education. SHP promotes a history curriculum for all learners that is rigorous, engaging and inclusive. The Project provides a clear and distinctive voice for history in schools based on its belief that history should be a diverse and fascinating subject enjoyed by everyone.
SHP provides inspiration for history teachers through its courses, published resources and training. It works in partnership with OCR in providing a GCSE history specification based on SHP principles (OCR B). The Project publishes a wide range innovative learning resources in partnership with Hodder Education. It also provides highly-regarded professional development for history teachers through its conferences and courses.
The Schools History Project is based at Leeds Trinity University. SHP’s Director, Dan Lyndon-Cohen, is supported by the SHP Fellows, who play a vital role in determining the development of the Project; by the SHP Honorary Fellows, who offer guidance when called upon; and by SHP’s Regional Advisers, who provide local contact points for teachers and trainees looking for support in their history teaching.
