Our fascinating Crime and Punishment tour investigates the social context of crime and the developments in policing throughout history.

Through a series of activities and workshops students are encouraged to hone their debating and problem solving skills.

The programme is designed to support the National Curriculum's Schools History Project GCSE development study "Crime and Punishment Through Time".

It can just as easily be adapted to support the Key Stage 2 Crime and Punishment unit and works great as a day trip for younger pupils.
