We also deliver 30-minute Zoom talks to any school in the world. The main teacher, Tony North, will visit schools within 50 minutes' drive of Manchester (see map). Tony teaches all the workshops. In the Yorkshire and Humber area, Rachel Bushby delivers the Egyptian Pharaohs workshop on Fridays only.

COVID-19: Time Trips will take all precautions necessary to ensure the safety of children and school staff. At a minimum this will entail following any guidelines laid down by the school, as well as by the government. If in the future any of the Time Trips team develops Covid symptoms, or is exposed to anyone with symptoms, we will postpone the booking.


COVID SAFE - Tony will take a lateral flow test before any workshop. He has had his first vaccination and will have his second in early June.



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). Rachel also has extensive educational and creative experience and skills (see her CV here).
