A Brief History ……

The British Schools Museum, nestled in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, England, holds a unique place in the annals of education history, tracing its origins back to the 19th century. Once a bastion of elementary education for the working class, it now stands as a living testament to the evolution of schooling in Britain.


Throughout its storied past, the museum has been home to several distinguished headmasters who left their indelible mark on its halls. Figures such as Thomas Holloway and John Coulson played pivotal roles in shaping the institution and its educational ethos.


Thomas Holloway, a visionary educator, served as headmaster during a transformative period in the school’s history. Under his leadership, the British Schools embraced innovative teaching methods and expanded its curriculum to meet the evolving needs of its students.


John Coulson, another notable headmaster, is remembered for his unwavering dedication to the welfare of his pupils. His compassionate approach to education fostered a nurturing environment where students thrived academically and personally.


But beyond its esteemed headmasters, the British Schools Museum is also renowned for its mysterious aura. Tales of ghostly encounters and unexplained phenomena have long circulated among visitors and staff members, adding an intriguing layer to its historical significance.


To satisfy the curiosity of paranormal enthusiasts, RIP-UK offer you the opportunity to delve into the spookier side of the Museum, ghost hunting and the rare opportunity to explore the premises after dark, delving into its rich history while keeping a keen eye out for spectral visitors.


Whether you’re drawn by its educational heritage, its ghostly reputation, or both, a visit to the British Schools Museum promises a captivating journey through time, where the echoes of the past mingle with the mysteries of the present.

What to Expect

Firstly a relaxed, fun time with like minded individuals! No matter if you come alone or as a group, you will leave having met some new people and maybe made some new friends on the way. 

On your ghost hunt with RIP-UK, you will have exclusive access to this location. Our events start at specific times, we ask that you arrive with time to spare ideally around 15 minutes before the event start time. The event will start with a relaxed greeting, health and safety briefing and shortly after we will venture forth into the unknown.

Please note this is not a sleep over event, if you are travelling a considerable distance we recommend you book a hotel room, there are a number of choices in the area.

The RIP-UK promise… this is REAL ghost hunting! As a team we promise on our events we fake nothing, we actively ask our event venue hosts to ensure any and all devices in the venue that could distract or cause false positives are turned off. We set up nothing more than the refreshments! 

This means what happens, happens but we will not make something happen falsely. We do endeavour to create every opportunity for genuine activity through vigil guidance and experiements.

To get the most from the evening we encourage you to try your hand at as many things as you can, if you’re feeling particularly brave you could try a lone vigil, join others on a ouija board or perhaps even sensory deprivation experiments as we try to commune with the spirits and ghosts of the building.

Please dress weather appropriately, with extra layers of clothing if it’s cold, plus comfortable shoes and a torch if you need one.
