was founded by Robert Scott Archaeologist and Education Officer together with dedicated voluntary officers in February 1997.
The College offers three interactive workshops on:
• Ancient Egypt
• Golden Age of Greece
• The Romans
All workshops support the National Curriculum Key Stage 1 & 2
Development of School-Link
School-Link started in October 1996 with our first workshop on the Ancient Egyptians. The first session involved 120-colour slide show with a supporting lecture. And from this first experience working with children, archaeologist Robert Scott understood that what the children needed was participation within a School-Link session, and not a lecture. From these humble beginnings and with participation and feedback from over 60 Primary and Middle school teachers, School-Link Workshops are now a full interactive hands-on, role-play sessions. Every child plays a part within the School-Link session engaging in cognitive and Affective learning experiences.
To Date School-Link has reached over 30,000 children.
