Secondary Education and Social Change in the UK since 1945.
Key Stage 3 resource packs.
These lessons are the product of a 2020–2021 collaboration between the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) – funded project Secondary Education and Social Change in the UK since 1945 (SESC), based at the University of Cambridge, and four secondary school history teachers who created the Key Stage 3 School Resource Packs based on SESC’s research.
The school resource packs are free to download for any secondary school history teachers interested in secondary education and social change. The packs all focus on one main research question: In what ways do schools reflect change in the United Kingdom since 1945? Use the links below to find out more and to download the resources.
