By far the best starting point is the Ireland in schools website which is geared specifically to the demands of the SHP course and developed by a team of Nottinghamshire history teachers.  The main headings focus on the historical background to Bloody Sunday and are organized as below.

  • Division & Peace
  • Ireland’s Bloody Past 1 – Lower
  • Ireland’s Bloody Past 2 – Higher
  • Orange Marches
  • Bloody Sunday & IRA 1 – Assignments
  • Bloody Sunday &IRA 2 – Background
  • Partition of Ireland 1. Study unit 2. Documents
  • Conflict at Holy Cross School, Belfast

The site also offers some excellent preparatory materials for Year 9.

Here is a very useful site from the Northern Ireland branch of the BBC. As you can see, it focuses on the Siege of Londonderry.
