Berkhamsted Castle


Berkhamsted Castle Trust is aiming to produce a range of free teaching resources to support teachers with the history National Curriculum at Key Stages 1, 2, & 3. When those are ready, they will be made available here. With site studies back at Key Stage 3 and a study of the historic environment now compulsory at GCSE we can help you choose a project connected to the Castle that will inspire your pupils.
