School Activities from Across the Centuries 

“Great experience for the children. Educational, exciting and brilliant value for money.” KS2 teacher

The Commandery is the perfect place to bring local and national history to life. It is the very place where, in 1651, the decisive battle at the end of the civil war took place, ending the rule of the monarchy in England.

The Commandery offers a whole host of hands-on activities and workshops for all ages. Young learners can discover what life was like during Tudor times and explore the arms & armour used during the English Civil Wars. Also, groups can enjoy a hosted walk around the city and, using historic maps of Worcester, discuss the events of the battle and its impact upon local and national history.

We offer the following topics for schools. Please bear in mind that these sessions are guidelines but can be adapted to suit your pupils' ages and SEN requirements or to suit your educational programme.
