Education & Learning
Understanding Llandudno history is about understanding change, resistance to change, and how the people of Llandudno’s past broke down barriers to create and refine what it means to exist and thrive in the world around them.
Our education programs are interactive, student-led, and fun.
National Curriculum of Wales
Our activities follow the National Curriculum of Wales to encourage learners who are:
- Ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives.
- Enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work.
- Ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world.
- Healthy, confident individuals who are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
We teach history through a series of arts, crafts, historical object handling, talks, walks, activities, and re-enactments. Our sessions are fully inclusive and can be adjusted for students at all education levels.
