Learning at Firepower
Firepower is the UK’s oldest military museum. The site it stands on, the Royal Arsenal at Woolwich, was one of the world’s most important centres for munitions manufacture between 1716-1964 and as a result was heavily bombed during both World Wars. Many of our guns, including air raid guns used by civilians to protect London’s skies during WW2, were made by local people on this site!
Firepower’s unique programme uses history to demonstrate the qualities needed to create and nurture a healthy life and community. We believe that the experiences and actions of ordinary servicemen and women or civilians living in a time of conflict in the past or present can challenge, inspire and educate people of all ages. Our School Programme is developed to support the National Curriculums for Primary and Secondary.
Our Enrichment Day programme for KS2-4 is the first of its kind offered by a UK museum – a structured combination of high-energy team-building challenges and history – provided in partnership with Challenger Troop, a youth engagement organisation recognised for its outstanding work by the Department for Education.
