For Hire

Schools Educational Resource Boxes

Available for loan to schools are a series of Educational Resource Boxes which are packed with fascinating artefacts, documents, toys and memorabilia from bygone days.

The boxes have been developed for curriculum support and reflect the topics covered in the National Curriculum. They are normally loaned for a period of two weeks. One box costs £10 per week. Further boxes loaned at the same time are charged at £5 per week.

They are available from our Schools Liaison Officer at BLHS Museum & Heritage Centre and may be collected, and returned, on Thursdays 1-4 pm or by agreement.

Because all schools cover these topics seasonal demand is likely so early booking is advisable and prompt return expected. All arrangements are to be made through our Schools Liaison Officer: Email Martyn.

See below the Educational Resource Boxes currently available with a list of contents for each:
