Edith Neville are located in the heart of Victorian history, situated only a street away
from an old workhouse. Consequently, their lessons have revolved around the class-
inequalities in Victorian society, specifically the treatment of children in the 19th century. Edith Neville’s 2016 silent film was set in a workhouse, so the real challenge for this year’s film was coming up with an entirely unique story. The class were amazing, and co-wrote an entire plot about lost siblings, injustice, and activism. The filming day was a perfect Spring day. With a bit of imagination and a lot of creativity, Edith Neville Primary School was transformed into a workhouse AND a stately home. The magic of film never ceases to amaze!
