Learning

The educational reach of the Mayflower programme is across all ages, abilities and activities, ensuring Mayflower is an inclusive opportunity, allowing all to understand the people and the voyage.

By creating specially designed resources, young people will be able to participate and learn about this international event, both in the classroom, across the destinations, and with our partners.

Mayflower 400 is a commemoration, exploring the legacy of the Mayflower and the impacts of the voyage. It is a broad, inclusive anniversary that recognises the that goes far beyond the story of the ‘Pilgrim Fathers’ and the one-dimensional version of the Mayflower voyage. It will examine the history of four nations from multiple angles, explore the experiences of those impacted and tell of the ruthless consequences of colonisation.

It is an opportunity to delve into this significant historical event, from the beginnings of the Separatist movement in England to the colonisation of North American and the impact of that colonisation on indigenous people - appreciating the difficult truths and understanding the impact and relevance to society today. 

The education pages on this website are here to help you explore the narrative and the wider context of the Mayflower voyage.
