'Busy' London visit helps students apply lessons to real life

LONDON called for a group of students from Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College, who had the chance to see in real life what they are learning about in school.

Over 40 Year 10 students who study computing, ICT, business or media studies visited the captial and took part in a range of visits and activities to support their learning.

The trip included visits to an animation workshop, the Museum of Brands, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and Harry Potter Studios, and a retail tour around Regent Street, Savile Row and Carnaby Street.

The students also took a river cruise along the Thames, did a walking tour around tech city, saw the new Jurassic Park film in 3D at the BFI IMAX cinema, and spent time in Leicester Square and Covent Garden.

Headteacher Alison Davies said: “This was a very busy trip, but one that the students will have benefited from. Having the opportunity to see and experience retail, businesses, technology and media in London will help the students to understand how what they learn about at school applies to the real world.

“For some of the students it was their first chance to visit the country’s capital which will have been a memorable experience for them.”
