In September 2019 we will launch a new educational resource about conflict throughout the ages, to inspire submissions to the 2019/20 competition.

For our First World War resources please click here.


Our new resources will provide an introduction to different forms of conflict throughout history, taking a thematic approach to illustrate the commonalities and differences between different conflicts.  The resources will examine the formation, duration, impact, and consequences of conflicts from the Punic Wars to the Partition of British India, whilst encouraging readers to apply these same analytical tools to other conflicts.  We will invite young people to reflect on these conflicts, and others, and use the creative arts as a way of responding to these challenging topics.

The resources will be available on our website, and access will be completely free of charge.

We would like to thank you in advance for visiting the new online resource.  As we currently are in the midst of launching this resource on our website, this comes with some adjustments for us.  When we created our First World War resource and had it published, it was a learning experience! As we embark on putting the new resource online, we are learning again and we kindly ask that if you notice any broken links or aspects of the website that do not properly work, please do email us at and let us know so we can get that fixed immediately.  The user experience is of the utmost importance to us, so we would appreciate any feedback you could provide to make the website more user friendly. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we develop the site to be an accessible tool for children and young people to learn about conflict through the ages.

If you would like to be notified when the new resources are launched in September 2019 please register your interest by emailing

The resource will enable children and young people to learn about and reflect on events in the past and present, giving them a creative platform to process challenging topics around conflict and commemoration.  

We are conducting focus groups with children and young people in a range of schools, taking guidance from our Education Advisory Board, and speaking to community leaders across the UK.  We also have an online survey which you can contribute to here:
