Back In Time For School

About the Show

About the Show

15 pupils and 3 teachers are embarking on an extraordinary time-travelling adventure, to discover just how much life at school has changed over the past 100 years. The school itself will be their time machine, transporting them through seven eras of British history. From Victorian grandeur and the age of Empire, through a post-war grammar, a '60s Secondary Modern, and finally the dawning of the digital revolution in the '80s and '90s. Guided through their time travels by presenter Sara Cox and social historian Polly Russell, everything the students and teachers experience - from the lessons they learn, to the dinners they eat, technology, discipline and playtime, will be based on historical data and school records of the past.
