War School: how much do you know about Britain's armed forces?

Quaker Peace Education have developed a learning resource to support teachers who want to ask bigger questions about the society in which they live.

How do war and the armed forces affect our lives? What is it like to join the military? To be trained? To experience armed conflict? What are the risks? What is the effect on everyday life? Using comic books, video, quizzes, maths and critical thinking, learners can explore these questions individually or as a class.

  • Hear from British veterans about the challenges they’ve faced

  • Useful for careers advisors who want students to get to understand what joining the military could mean

  • Learners practise a professional risk assessment

  • Analyse multimedia content from War School and the British Army

  • Reflect on what too much militarism may mean for society
