It’s dressing up day in our Passport to the Past after (home) school club. Do your best to find a flat cap, scruffy shirt, braces and shorts, or black skirt, frilly white top a bow for your hair as you travel back in time to an interactive Victorian classroom. And remember, bring an apple for your teacher!

Join Miss Fowkes and Miss O’Keefe as they tell you to listen up, stop talking and recite your times tables. Just Kidding, this is going to be fun – we promise!

  • How were lessons different in the Victorian days?
  • Were girls treated the same as boys?
  • What happened if you were naughty in class?
  • Were pens and pencils invented yet?

Find out the answers to these and many more questions in these interactive Zoom sessions where you’ll meet other people, hear from experts and enjoy fun activities you can either do during the club, or in your own time afterwards.

If you are aged 6 – 13 and enjoy history and what it can tell us about today’s world, don’t miss this monthly online after school club! You’ll meet, talk to, and have lots of real time fun as experienced session leaders from Gloucestershire Archives as they lead you on an hour-long adventure into the past.
