Inspired by the painting The First London School Board, featuring suffragists Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Emily Davies, a Victorian classroom will be recreated in the Gallery by The Ragged School Museum.

The session will explore what life was like for courageous Victorian school children, and the different opportunities available to girls and boys.

The session will also be run for school groups on 6 June.
