School Resources

Islington Stories is a series of resource packs developed by Islington Heritage Service.

Designed to be used flexibly across the key stages, these packs provide a short history of a local person, location, or event, alongside discussion prompts, curriculum links, related external links, and a bank of printable archive materials including photos, maps and text. These resources can be accessed here, or from the 11 by 11 portal.

An ongoing project, led by Islington Museum and the Cally Clock Tower Centre, this bank of resources will continue to grow. If you have suggestions for themes, figures, events or subjects you would like to see covered here, get in touch via
