Waterloo 200 is an educational project dedicated to supporting students and teachers across the country. You can browse our educational resources on the right of the page, free to download for classroom use. Look on our Lesson Plans page for complete sets of presentations and resources. You’ll also find teacher’s notes on many of the 200 Objects that tell the story of Waterloo.

With the help of celebrity historian Dan Snow, Waterloo 200 partnered with 200 schools around the country. Each school “adopted” one of the 200 Objects and research a Waterloo soldier from the local area. For more information, see below.

In March 2015, we also launched an original schools competition in partnership with Hungry for History, a national schools commemorative campaign designed to instil a love of history in children and to encourage the sharing of ideas and the forging of links between schools. Learn about their schools events with Dan Snow and Peter Snow for the commemorations here.
