ARMED with deerstalkers and magnifying glasses, these pupils look just like the detectives they are learning about at school.

Pupils at Mayville High School in Southsea have been holding a themed week about mysteries.

And as part of their education, they were visited on Monday by Portsmouth City Museum archivist Michael Gunton, who looks after the city’s Arthur Conan Doyle collection.

Tracy Holmes, from the school, said: ‘Michael was fantastic and he knew so much, which he shared with all the kids.

‘The kids were buzzing.

‘We’re trying to make the theme fit in with all areas of the curriculum.

‘We’re still sleuthing now.’
