It looked like a scene from Dickens as these youngsters made their way to school in

It looked like a scene from Dickens as these youngsters made their way to school in Coventry. But although they were dressed in the style of 1875, they knew they weren't going to a school anything like that awful Dotheboys Hall in "Nicholas Nickleby". They were taking part in an open week at Stoke Infants School, Briton Road, which is celebrating its forthcoming centenary. Parents made the costumes for the youngsters, who tried to recreate some of the atmosphere of the school when it opened in January 1876. Schooldays were far from the best of anyone's life then, so these children could affford to smile because they did not have to undergo the same experiences. They will not be using the Victorian school building after this week either. For next term the school will move to the premises of a former secondary school nearby.
