The BPMA collections can be used by post-16 learners, including those studying for A-Levels, The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, or Foundation Degrees.
The Royal Mail Archive (cared for by the BPMA and Designated as a collection of outstanding national importance) is an excellent source of research material for post-16 learners – particularly for coursework projects.
Students of subjects such as history, art and design, geography, and English are welcome to make use of our online catalogue, and can visit the Archive itself as individuals or in small groups.
Archive staff are available to help with enquires before your visit, and on hand in the Archive Search Room to help you access material relevant to your chosen study area.
For all the information you need to know about visiting the Archive, please click here.
The Archive currently lacks a dedicated learning space and associated facilities, and so we are unable to accommodate visits by large groups of students during normal opening hours.
However, we are currently piloting on-site visits from learning groups during Archive closure days – these take place on every second Monday of the month, and follow our monthly Saturday openings.
