National Civil War Centre


In 2021, we worked together with Max Literacy and Nottinghamshire poet Ioney Smallhorne to help Year 10 students from Newark Academy improve their creative writing skills. The project also resulted in the creation of 6 lesson plans and a booklet to aid students' GCSE preparation. You can find these resources and more about the Max Literacy project here.

We are also able to facilitate literacy themed visits to the museum. Get in touch with us at to discuss a KS4 visit – either with or without a professional writer.

Our team can create literacy-themed sessions for primary and secondary schools using our museum collection, artworks and archives. Get in touch with us to find out how we can help.
