A Selection of School Visits

For some years now The Victorian School has been providing Victorian Days and Victorian Weeks for schools, mainly for keysatge 1 and keystage 2, but sometimes for older students, even parents and grandparents. More recently, by request, we have added days that cover other historical periods. This page lists the various topics and more details can be found by clicking on the appropriate button. We can generally provide special presentations to cover anniversaries, wow days, and conferences.
