Mayflower Schools Resource

Transforming Plymouth Together & Plymstock Chapel are delighted to present our Mayflower Education Resource, which includes a programme of videos and activities to share the faith story of the Pilgrims who travelled from the shores of Plymouth to America over 400 years ago.

The Mayflower Education Resource was created from a shared desire between Transforming Plymouth Together and Plymstock Chapel to tell the faith story of the Pilgrims as part of the Mayflower journey.

Mayflower Project is now with 10 primary schools across the city! We’re pleased to see the resource inspire creativity and conversation about this area of Plymouth’s rich history and the Pilgrims who made the journey.
This year, TPT have chosen to make the Mayflower Schools Project available for free! Interested parents, school governors, school staff members or church-based childrens workers who would like their school to receive this resource should get in contact with

Mayflower Schools Project is a five-session program, with professionally filmed videos and accompanying worksheets, plus topical resources for school years 4, 5 and 6. Combining education and entertainment, the drama company 4Front Theatre filmed 5 x ‘Horrible Histories’ style dramas on the Matthew ship in Bristol. These bring local history to life while discussing modern parallels between the Mayflower story and our world today: refugees, persecution and Christian beliefs.

The Mayflower Team have worked with teachers and educators to ensure that the resources are curriculum appropriate and also allow for other subjects to be considered within the activities. We can also assist with ideas for suitable linked school trips and events if helpful.

As well as schools, this resource is also great for churches, youth groups or even the young at heart who just want to learn more about the historic Mayflower journey.
