Lord Burghley’s Almshouses
- This six page revision guide is aimed at students to help study, organise, revise and be prepared for the AQA GCSE 9-1 Elizabethan England 1568-1603 Historic Environment question for 2022.
- I have included 6 possible questions for GCSE exam practise and broken down the main details of Lord Burghley’s Almshouses into manageable chunks, using the 5w’s.
- This guide, using the ‘w’ words for simplification, focuses on the main concepts; for example its location in Stamford, its function and structure as it transformed itself from a hospital into a residence for 13 poor men, the people connected to it such as William Cecil, Lord Burghley, the design such as its east and west wings and six distinct chimneys and important events which influenced its owner, such as Puritanism and the changing attitudes towards the poor.
- All the information and more is advised by AQA through their Paper 2: Shaping the nation resource pack guidance.
- I have also gained inspiration in my research for this study from renowned historians such as Dr John Guy and his podcast on Lord Burghley and Carmel Bones who is the AQA lead on Elizabethan England, of whom I am extremely grateful.
- The resource comes in PDF and Word if you wish to adapt and change.
- I would welcome any reviews on this resource which would be bery appreciated.

Lord Burghley's Almshouses Bundle
* This Bundle has been designed to help teachers and students prepare for the AQA 2022 Historic Environment study on Lord Burghley’s Almshouses. * **Resource 1:** The Revision Guide includes 6 possible questions for GCSE exam practise and breaks down the main details and significance of Lord Burghley’s Almshouses into manageable chunks using student friendly language. * **Resource 2:** As an introduction to this Historic Environment question, I have included a lesson on Poverty and the Elizabethan Poor Law of 1601. This lesson explores why there was an increase in poverty in Elizabethan England and what it like to be poor. * Furthermore it explains how many Elizabethans had little sympathy for the poor whom they saw an itinerants and idle beggars. However the lesson also focuses on how some attitudes changed and why was there a rise in the building of Almshouses by the end of the Sixteenth Century. * **Resource 3:** The lesson included on Lord Burghley explores the significance of his Almshouses by focusing on where the Almshouses were built (location), who Lord Burghley was (people connected), when they were built and/or modified (reflection), what its features were (function and structure) and more importantly why he built them (important events). * All the resources come in PDF, Word or Powerpoint formats if you wish to adapt and change. * I would welcome any reviews, which would be much appreciated. * You can also download my free copy of a previous Historic Environment Question on Hardwick Hall for 2018 for similar guidance which can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-gcse-9-1-revision-guide-historic-environment-hardwick-hall-2018-11810703 *
