This year Londoners have faced lots of new challenges together. This resource by Guildhall Art Gallery and St Paul’s Cathedral is for new year 7s explores challenge, resilience, and community.

By thinking about the challenges faced by Londoners in the past, students will explore how they and other Londoners today can take on some of the challenges that face us, such as moving to a new school, the coronavirus pandemic, racism, poverty.

We hope that when visiting is possible, you may take up the option to book a visit to both Guildhall Gallery and St Paul’s Cathedral (free of charge) to complete the experience.
