Locating a National Collection - Schools survey and interview

  • 1. Historic Royal Palaces


Questions posed as part of a survey of schools (teachers and pupils) conducted by Locating a National Collection and funded by the AHRC.

The survey consisted of a series of questions to be completed anonymously online via Google Forms by teachers and pupils in response to an invitation on the Historical Association website. The survey was intended to take around around 15 minutes. The survey aimed to investigate attitudes and behaviours in two areas: history/cultural heritage and digital technologies, with a clear focus on location and eliciting responses to both class room and out of school behaviours. Teachers were invited to participate in a follow-up interview posing more indepth questions about engagement with heritage in teaching, use of sources, use of technology and ways of improving accessibility for schools and their understanding of history.  

The research has been led by Historic Royal Palaces in collaboration with the British Library and the National Trust.
