With the introduction of the Curriculum for Excellence in Scottish schools, the Scottish Wars of Independence have become a key core subject for pupils who have chosen history as part of the personalisation process. Historic Battlefield Tours believe that history belongs in the field as much as it does in the classroom and that by walking and visiting the sites of key events, pupils can gain a better appreciation of the subject they are studying.
As a company one of our underlying aims is the investigation, promotion and preservation of Scottish battlefields and conflict sites, and an important part of ensuring that we meet this goal is the use of them as educational tools for all of our customers. We fully believe that the tours and services we are offering to schools will provide the pupils with an important and stimulating experience which will be of great benefit to them in their studies.
Our services for schools are not restricted to the Wars of Independence and whether you’re looking to investigate the battlefields and conflict sites associated with the Rough Wooing, the Wars of the Three Kingdoms, the Jacobites or WWI and WWII, we have something to offer your school.
For more information on exactly what we have to offer your school, our special school prices and how we can help your pupils gain that extra insight into this fascinating area of Scottish history contact us and ask for a
Schools Information Pack.
Please note that we are no longer able to provide buses or coaches for school tours.
