Year 11 History Students visit the East End!

This week, our Year 11 History students took part in an East End walking tour of London as part of their GCSE Crime and Punishment Module. 6 registered guides took 137 students around various sites relevant to the history of the East End which included material on poverty, policing and the notorious crimes of Jack the Ripper. Although a very chilly day for a two hour walk, the students reacted superbly to the guides with precise and searching questioning which was much appreciated. The guides certainly brought the atmosphere of late Victorian London to life and gave students a real sense of the dark and sometimes treacherous underbelly of the capital.

Many thanks to the History department for organising this trip.
