Our out of school courses for both primary and secondary students are now well-established. They are developed by Archive Service staff in conjunction with the Schools Improvement Division and delivered by experienced staff. These are suitable mainly for groups of "Gifted and Talented" students. Group sizes can range from 4 pupils up to a maximum of 18.

The aim of these courses to is enable talented and gifted pupils to utilize the unique resources held by the Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive Service. They are designed to challenge pupils, offering a rare opportunity to use original archive material in a special learning environment, enriching the learning process and enhancing the pupils' sense of place and community.

Because these courses involve the use of unique and irreplaceable historical documents they are offered only at the Learning and Archive Resource Centre at Staffordshire Record Office.
