A Tour with a Difference

Year 12 and 13 Sociology students visited Durham University to explore the Sociology and Criminology Faculty and spend time with Dr Kim Jamie discussing the social stratification of society and the impact of policy on the individual. The university programme covers areas such as health, communities and social policy, education and social inequality.  Students then took a crime walk of Durham which charted the change in attitudes to punishment over the last 500 years from the last execution site to the famous escape from Durham prison.
