About
We are two History teachers with nearly 30 years of collective experience in education. Although we are both History specialists, we have also taught a range of other subjects including Classics, Citizenship, Government and Politics and Law. These subjects have been taught from GCSE level up to and including A2. As well as our time spent in the classroom, we have also done marking for various exam boards, organised numerous school trips and events including an English Civil War Activity Day, with re-enactors. We acquired our nickname 'the History Blokes' from a colleague who thought we knew everything there was to know about History. Of course that wasn't true but we do share a passion for the subject that extends well beyond the classroom. This year we spent an intensive five days at Hadrian's Wall talking to experts at the different sites. Our aim with our resources is to produce high quality lessons that can be easily differentiated and do not rely on specific textbooks.
