NCCL Nottingham has got quality

Date Posted: 04/11/2014

The National Centre for Citizenship and the Law (NCCL) has been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom quality badge.

Stuart Berry, learning and access manager for NCCL in Nottingham commented: “We all know how important it is to bring pupils out of schools as part of a programme to enrich their studies in the classroom”.

NCCL in Nottingham hosts a variety of activities for all age ranges. Popular activities at the venue include mock trials and the crime and punishment tour.

Get your class tried and punished!

The Crime and Punishment tour offers schools the chance to be guided around the Victorian Courts and the Georgian Gaol by a variety of colourful characters from history.

The Victorian CSI session invites pupils to the Narrow Marsh area of Nottingham in 1888, where they are asked to hunt for clues to solve a crime in one of Nottingham’s most notorious districts. 

At the end of the session, pupils are asked to contrast the methods of the Victorian detectives with those used by the police in the present.

The Victorian Children Mock Trial allows pupils to spend time in one of our Victorian court rooms and examine the Victorian justice system as they act out a case of two Victorian children tried for theft.
