Who went to school in Tudor times?
This clip examines what school would have been like in Tudor times, who would have attended and what the day would have entailed. We are shown how school was for wealthy boys and that parents paid in order for their children to attend. The length of the school day is also discussed and the consequences for poor behaviour. As a contrast, the clip examines the educational opportunities for those who were less wealthy.
This clip could be used for additional independent research, allowing the students to consider whether they would prefer to be in school now or in Tudor times and whether they would prefer to have been rich or poor.
