Why choose Portals to the Past?

We are not just “teachers that get dressed up”. Our multi-talented re-enactors are specialists in their field; true historians with a genuine passion for the past.

At Tadworth Primary School we have been using Portals to The Past for many years. The children have enjoyed workshops/themed days focused on WW1, WW2, Vikings, Romans and Greeks, and this year the team have added Egyptians for Year 6 too. We find that the content of the workshops is always presented in an interesting and engaging way. The staff who have visited us bring the subject matter to life with real passion and the children always have a great day. The team in the office are friendly and efficient, they are a pleasure to work with.

The session led by Martin was brilliant and very well received by all the children on Tuesday. They were engaged, intrigued and had lots of laughter and fun. I would certainly recommend the session to others!

We had a brilliant Stone Age workshop day! Dominic was extremely engaging and great with the children. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and the children loved taking part in the different activities. I would certainly book this again! Thank you very much.
