School Workshops at the Marx Memorial Library

School Workshops at the Marx Memorial Library


The Marx Memorial Library offers school groups specially tailored tours of our historic building and workshops featuring our unique archive collections, ideal for GCSE and A-level


‘Visiting the MML provided my students with an excellent introduction to viewing and using archival resources. The variety and richness of the sources available was eye opening for my students who loved the atmosphere …There were some really interesting teaching and learning points which helped the students gain a broader understanding of the topics they were studying.’

(Alan Kunna, History teacher, Newham Sixth Form College)

'Our A-Level History and Politics students were delighted to see the fascinating documents kept by MML on the Russian Revolution and the Spanish Civil War and to see Lenin’s office. The students loved the visit and we have returned many times since to the ideas we learnt at MML.'

(Tom Sawbridge, Ark Academy, Wembley)

‘The library is a great resource for our students and the courses we teach. Please keep me posted about developments.’

(Rob Behan, History Teacher, Newham Sixth Form College)

Students say: 

'It was genuinely fascinating to see where Lenin worked when he was in London. I can imagine him there, planning the Russian Revolution' 

 'I didn’t know much about the Spanish Civil War before our visit. It was so interesting to find out more about it.'

Our workshops are educational for all levels, but are resources particularly helpful for history or politics students wanting to carry out research for their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Ou materials would also particularly help students looking at Russel Group Universities or Oxbridge. Taking part in one of our workshops can also aid students in writing their university personal statements.
