Headmistress Sally North invites children to step back in time and
Great Cressingham Victorian School wins Sandford Award for Heritage Education.
The 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.
She has also toured schools with her Music and Drama productions for over 30 years.
Bookings for the Autumn term will be taken from June onwards. The National Curriculum is keeping the Victorians and so I will expect to become fully booked quickly so please don't delay.
