Formal Education

The Archives and Cornish Studies Service offers a varied and free formal learning programme for schools, further education colleges and universities in Cornwall.

We offer free outreach visits on a number of topics and themes. These can give young children and higher education students alike a chance to delve, first-hand, into Cornwall’s history. A range of loans boxes can also be borrowed, for free, from the Record Office. These are listed with the other topics and themes.

From September we are unable to offer education visits to Cornwall Record Office or the Cornish Studies Library as both venues will be closed in order to prepare our extensive archive collections for the move to Kresen Kernow, Cornwall's new archive centre. Once Kresen Kernow opens in Redruth in 2019 we plan to offer visits and tours, as well as workshops and placements, for schools, colleges and universities. 

For more information on our Formal Education offer, or to discuss ideas for projects or partnerships, please contact the Learning Lead at Cornwall Record Office.
