Under the heading – History brought to life…….in YOUR school! – ‘Select Society’ has made numerous appearances at State and Independent Schools across the UK.
In keeping with the present National Curriculum, history is ‘brought to life’ in the guise of the ‘characters’ that we offer, affording students the opportunity to be informed in a constructive and engaging manner and, in these times of economic difficulty, as we visit your school, there is no requirement for expensive coach travel or entrance fees!
The programmes we offer are a cost effective way of meeting educational requirements whilst adding colour and spectacle. Importantly, we can tailor our visit to meet the specific requirements of your teaching scheme.
Each of our presentations is supported by historically authentic costume, furniture, and ‘props’, with which we ‘set the scene’, and stimulate interest and curiosity. We supply all learning materials and resources: work sheets and other resources appropriate to the syllabus.
Our presentations are ‘character based’ in that students meet the historical person concerned who will, in turn, speak and conduct themselves in the style and custom of the period represented. Throughout there is ample opportunity for Q & A and students are encouraged to interact with the historical character.
A ‘half-day’ (morning) programme is based on 1 x class (of approx 30 pupils). Our Fee for the ‘half-day’ programme is based upon 1 x class although additional classes may be added (in multiples of approx 30 pupils), with a slight increase in cost due to the provision of additional resources. We supply all materials and resources.
A ‘whole-day’ (morning and afternoon) programme is based on 1 x class (approx 30 pupils). Our Fee for the ‘whole day’ programme is based upon 1 x class although additional classes may be added (in multiples of approx 30 pupils), with a slight increase in cost due to the provision of additional resources. We supply all materials and resources.
PLEASE NOTE: It is not possible to have more than 2 classes (approx 60 students) on a ‘whole-day’ programme.
Some schools prefer the option of two x ‘half-day’ programmes – the morning presentation to one class is repeated, in the afternoon, to a second class.
We will be pleased to discuss your school’s requirements so as to ensure that we fully meet with your expectations.
Visits by each of our ‘characters’’ is covered by an ‘Equity’ policy of public liability insurance (in the sum of £10m).
