Details of School and College Outreach activities, events and resources for history, English and music.

Are you hooked on History, excited about English, motivated to make Music, or attracted to American Studies?  If so, we’d love to meet you!

We offer a wide range of activities for school/college pupils and teachers in History, English Literature, Language and Linguistics, Creative Writing, American Studies and Music.

Look out for our regular subject taster days. We typically hold at least one for GCSE students and one for Sixth Form students each year with a range of subject sessions led by our academic and an opportunity to visit our campus.

Our student ambassadors also do school visits where they lead 50-minute subject sessions aimed at Years 9-11 as part of Northumbria’s Junior Evolve programme.

School/college groups of all ages are also welcome to attend our free lunchtime concert series with performances by both student and professional musicians.

In the past we’ve also held teacher workshops and virtual study seminars. Moreover, our researchers are also often out and about sharing their world-leading research in public events, so you’ll find details of one-off events and other opportunities suitable for schools and families too.

Finally, of course, you can always meet us at one of the Northumbria University Open Days.

Check out our blog below for up-to-date details, dates, and how to book for all these activities and more!

If you have a query unrelated to a specific event, please contact in the first instance.
