LPA Oral History Project
“Everyone, irrespective of their background, has a unique story to tell. Oral history allows people whose voices might not otherwise be heard to share their experiences. The act of retelling life events can help people understand their lives and often contribute to a sense of wellbeing and identity both for individuals and communities. At their most powerful, oral histories can explain, enrich understanding and encourage empathy with others.”
The Lodge Park Academy Oral History Project aims to record the memories and experiences of current and former students and staff of Lodge Park Academy and its predecessor schools as well as from the wider Corby community. This exciting project will focus on recording the recollections of childhood, school and family life, employment, and other aspects of everyday life at the school and in the surrounding area. As it grows this collection of recordings will form an important research tool for people wanting to study the history of Corby.
If you would like to be involved in this project and are willing to participate in a recorded interview, please contact the Academy using the email address below and we will arrange a time for this to take place.
