The Churchill Archive for Schools has been specially developed by leading history educators to support teaching and learning, and to introduce students to the wonders of working with archive content. It offers open access to a selection of key documents from the complete Churchill Archive plus an expanding range of excellent classroom-ready resources. Why not start exploring here?

The Churchill Archive for Schools also provides an accessible and exciting entry point into the complete Churchill Archive, described by History Today as the ‘real gem of online Churchill resources.’ The Churchill Archive, published by Bloomsbury, is now free for the first time for schools worldwide thanks to the generous donation of $1 million made by US-based, British businessman and philanthropist Laurence Geller CBE.
The complete Churchill Archive offers cross-searchable access to more than 800,000 pages of original documents from 1874 to 1965. Containing everything from Churchill’s personal correspondence with family and friends to important historical documents, the Churchill Archive provides a unique insight into the life and times of a leading figure of modern history. In addition to providing excellent support for independent learning, the Churchill Archive also helps students to develop their research skills which will be vital for success in higher education.
