Jack The Ripper Museum Trip

Year 10 History students enjoyed a gruesome tour through the darkened streets of Whitechapel this term, hot on the trail of Jack The Ripper. The students, currently studying Crime and Punishment in preparation for their exams next year, took the opportunity to investigate some of the most, wicked crimes in history. The tour retraced the steps of the infamous criminal as students learnt about the wider aspects of what life was like in one of the poorest areas of London at the time. The knowledge and first-hand experience of seeing what Whitechapel was like in the 1880s gave the girls an excellent context in which to base their historical enquiry. Although we left with sore feet from the walking, an excellent time was had by all!
