Luckley solves 'Village Murder Mystery'


A Mystery at Luckley House School!

Year 7 pupils from Wokinghams Luckley House School teamed up with their peers from a variety of local Prep Schools for an exciting enrichment day on Thursday 27 February. The event, entitled The Chalkwell Murder Mystery was organised by the all girls independent school in Wokingham Berkshire.

The day involved challenging, but fun activities in English, Maths and Science, which led the pupils to discover the identity of the Chalkwell Murderer. They worked together as Reporters to study the alibis from the four main suspects and created their own version of events in the form of a newspaper report. They then became Detectives and Private Investigators to solve clues with logic puzzles using supporting evidence from the murder case, and then spent a session as Forensic Scientists in the Science Laboratories carrying out experiments on soil and other materials found at the crime scene. The day ended with a performance by three Luckley Year 10 pupils, showing what actually happened.

Mrs Tudor, Headmistress said: It was a delight to welcome pupils from local Prep Schools to Luckley to work with our girls on this fun enrichment day. They all had a fabulous time and worked extremely well together.
