Time Trips delivers workshops on ancient history and science subjects in primary schools in the North West of England and in the Yorkshre and Humber area. The main teacher, Tony North, works in schools within 50 minutes' drive of Manchester (see map). Tony teaches all the workshops except the Anglo-Saxons. In the Yorkshire and Humber area, Rachel Bushby and Ian Martin deliver the Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Greek Legacies and Egyptian Pharaohs workshops. They also deliver the Anglo-Saxons in all regions of the North of England. For details of which activities they cover, follow the links to those workshops.

Why Choose Time Trips?
Each lesson has been carefully designed to engage children with educational and exciting hands-on activities, such as making models and artefacts, role play, drama, and games. The lessons are fully compatible with the curriculum, and are regularly updated and improved.

The creative activities are of a very high standard compared to other history or science workshops. In spite of this the price is lower than the average cost of a school visit, because I (Tony) design all the resources and activities myself, and also because we are all self-employed, so there is no one taking a cut of our fee.

Workshops last a full day and take place mainly in the classroom. Tony is a former history teacher with an MEd and an MSc in child psychology (see Tony's CV). Ian and Rachel also have extensive educational and creative experience and skills (see their CVs here).
You can now read the whole of my novel, Marathon, on this website. I wrote it in 2009 and self-published it. It is a story about two boys and their father who were in the battle of Marathon, and is suitable for older children.
