Pupils investigate history at the College

The mystery of what happened to the Princes in the Tower is one of the most enduring in English history. Year 6 pupils from the Junior School were invited by Mr Tiley, Head of History at the College, to try to solve this mystery.

Sixth-form Students added to the drama of the event by acting out the key roles of Elizabeth Woodville (the distraught mother of the Princes), Henry VII, the Duke of Buckingham and Richard III.

In groups, the Year 6 pupils used primary evidence to find clues to solve the mystery. At the end of the morning the pupils gave their verdict on Richard III - ‘Not Guilty’ based on the evidence presented.

Many thanks to Mr Tiley and the Sixth Form students for all their hard work!
