About Stamps In Schools

A Little Bit of History


The Stamps in Schools project is the brainchild of Erene Grieve, retired teacher and Lecturer in Developmental Psychology for the Open University. Erene realised that she had hit upon a winning idea when her first visits into schools proved a great success with both pupils and teachers.


The Stamps in Schools project has received much acclaim, including two coveted Rowland Hill Awards from the British Philatelic Trust. Erene has spoken about her work on ‘Woman’s Hour’ on BBC Radio 4, and ‘The Jeremy Vine Show’ on Radio 2, as well as spots on BBC Radio Wales.

Stamps in Schools has been featured in the Education Guardian and many local papers, which can provide an exciting additional outcome for pupils following a stamp day.

Sponsorship of the project by the British Postal Museum and Archive has enabled Erene to travel to many parts of the UK, where her work has often been supported by members of the local philatelic society.

Here, in Southport, the 80th Anniversary of our Club was marked by a presentation given by Erene who took the opportunity to visit two local primary schools where the children showed marked interest in the stamps and the stories brought by Erene.
