Ayscoughfee Hall School pupils learn about Victorian England.

Youngsters learned all about how tough it could be living in Victorian England.


Pupils from year six at Spalding’s Ayscoughfee Hall School enjoyed a “fantastic” trip to the Galleries of Justice in Nottingham , where they attended reform school. 
Headteacher Clare Ogden said: “They found out just how strict school could be.
“They also re-enacted a play in an actual Victorian courtroom of a case for two convicted children and finished off by experiencing criminals’ lives in the very corrupt jail.”
