This year the Schools’ Conference (previously known as the Cromwell Association Teachers’ Day) will take place at St Paul’s School, London, on Wednesday 27th June. We very much hope you will consider joining us and bringing a delegation of sixth-form students with you. Over the years the number of students attending our events has increased, so this year the day will be planned around the students themselves, but there will still be much for their teachers to enjoy!
Our theme will be the 1640s, and our speakers are Professor Jason Peacey from University College London, Dr David Smith from Selwyn College, Cambridge, Professor Peter Gaunt from the University of Chester and Dr Joan Redmond, from King’s College, London.
The format of the day has been changed from previous years. The morning will start with three debates by our speakers; each debate will consider an aspect of the English Civil war period relevant to the A-level and Pre-U examination curriculums.
St Paul’s will kindly provide lunch, which will be followed by workshop sessions, led by the speakers and focusing on aspects of the 1640s through source analysis. The day will start at 11am and conclude at 3pm.
Due to the collaboration with St Paul’s, we are able to offer this day at the much-reduced price of £20pp for non-Cromwell Association members and £15pp for members of the Association (remember – it’s free to join the Association as a school member – please request membership on the booking form ).
We regret that this event is not open to individual members of the Association or members of the general public.
