Headmistress Sally North invites children to step back in time and experience first-hand a day at a real Victorian school

Miss NorthThe school building was built in 1840.

It was used as a local Authority school until 1992 and was then acquired by Tom and Sally North. They have restored it as closely as possible to how it would have been in Victorian times. For example, it is once again heated by a coal fired "Tortoise" stove and lit by an oil lamp.

The school was featured in the BBC TV Landmark series on Victorian Childhood. You can see some video footage on the BBC website by clicking here.

Sally (left) has run the school as head-mistress since 1994 and many thousands of children have benefited from free school visits.
