We proudly serve over 2 million teachers every year. Here are some of our favourite testimonials from our premium members.

School History resources have been essential for my tailoring of IGCSE teaching.

Their resources offer teachers a variety of methods to interest students, allow access to relevant information and to teach analytical skills.

With our move to online learning, I found that many more remote-friendly resources (PowerPoint, worksheets and more) were needed on a daily basis.

Over the last three years, I have taught both IGCSE and A level history, and School History has been my go-to site for material.

It has a wealth of information, excellently organised by examination syndicate, to help students understand and teachers prepare.

From PPT presentations to handouts and assessments, the material is invaluable to any history teacher.

I have accessed great resources that complement the Australian curriculum in History. My students have found some of the summaries very helpful (shout out to the Card Categorisation Task - part of the Russia unit 1917 - 1941). Students have applied the structure to other topics we've studied as well.

The resources are succinct and well structured, easy for the students to understand. I also like the links to appropriate clips for the more visual learners.

School History is a brilliant website in supporting the teaching of the History Curriculum, for both specialists and non-specialists.

There is a range of resources and activities that you can use or modify to give your students personalised learning experience.

As a school, we have found the new range of GCSE materials and topic booklets invaluable in helping us plan and prepare students for the rigour of exams.

As premium members, we have access to all of the resources and would recommend joining without hesitation.

School History has been a great help. The resources are well presented and interesting and they have been a Godsend during the COVID lockdown, especially with less advantage pupils at my school who have not had access to the internet. They have been able to continue alongside other students. It has been a great time saver too.

I subscribed to School History when I started to teach in a Secondary School in north Italy. I love teaching and when I was given the opportunity to teach in Italy I jumped at the chance. However, I wanted to make sure my lessons were up to date and because they were in English I wanted good activities to reinforce what I was teaching. So I used School History and found excellent information and activities. I highly recommend School History.

Thank you from a homeschooling mum (ex History teacher), helping her daughter through her AQA GCSE course. The lessons, PowerPoints and exam booklets have been a godsend. It has allowed her to build her knowledge and confidence in working independently. Resources are very detailed and I highly recommend School History to all!

I have used School History resources for years and years. I no longer teach the French Revolution, but those were the first handouts I discovered, and I used for a very long time. I have recently been able to find whole lessons on the Aztecs and the Incas, among other somewhat unexpected things. The resources are clear, organized, and range from the basics to very detailed depending on one's needs as a teacher.

I love the resources that are available on the School History site. I have used many of them when teaching. When teaching wars, revolutions etc these resources could not be better. I love the site. Wonderful resources.

School History has provided me with excellent PowerPoints, assessments, quizzes and practise exam questions to help me teach GCSE History.
