Congratulations Mr Roper!

It is with great pleasure that we take this opportunity to celebrate and say well done to Mr Roper, Holyrood Academy’s Head of History. Mr Roper has successfully been awarded a place on the Local History Fellowship Programme, a prestigious national opportunity jointly ran by the Historical Association and the British Association for Local History.

The Local History Fellowship Programme provides History teachers with the opportunity to work with renowned historians, archivists and history education specialists supported by the University College London Institute of Education. Throughout the programme, Mr Roper will be specialising in how schools can bring History to life in the classroom by teaching students about their local history. This will lead to Mr Roper creating resources about the local history of Chard that will then be shared with all history teachers in the country by the History Association.

Only six secondary school history teachers in the UK were successfully appointed to this fellowship and we couldn’t be more proud that Mr Roper was selected as one of them. We know that he’ll celebrate the brilliance of Holyrood Academy and its students as part of his engagement with this programme alongside bringing national attention to the local history of Chard.
