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)

‘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)
