The Schoolroom

The Schoolroom is based in Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills and enables pupils to experience, in role, school as it was in the past. The available sessions provide a ‘Living History’ experience and have for many years’ excited and motivated Leeds school children in their quest to discover more about children long ago and their school life.
