The Imperial War Museum School Trip

As part of the year 10 English curriculum, the groups have been studying ‘An Inspector Calls’, written by J.B.Priestley. In order to develop their ability to draw comparison and understand the context in which the story was written, a trip to the Imperial War Museum was organised by the English department. The aim was to give the individuals an insight into what life was like when the book was written and to help them better understand some of the opinions and experiences that are explored throughout the text.

It must be assumed therefore that the group, whilst enjoying an ‘eat all you can Chinese buffet’, were simply drawing comparisons from the rations available at the time that Priestley penned ‘An Inspector calls’ to the plethora of food that can be enjoyed today.

The group were impeccably behaved and agreed that the trip, served well to better inform their understanding of the book.
