Year 8 students from Forest Hall School in Stansted visited the Museum of London Docklands to learn about a bygone era.

The trip gave them an insight into their topic on the transatlantic slave trade.

Students were able to walk down a replica street, with shops, taverns and a ship yard, and learnt how the London docks were used to export goods created by the industrial revolution.


Head of year Sarah Snowdon said: "The trip gave students a sense of understanding of how horrific treatment was for Black individuals during this time. It also helped students to understand the role Britain played in this.

"The trip was also hugely beneficial as it helped link to our next topic of the industrial revolution."
