Mrs Wormald and Mrs Park decided to take upon the challenge of giving 14 sixth form students from Fyling Hall School the opportunity to explore London and its diverse culture.

The four-day trip included various shows and exhibitions some of which included The Tate Modern, The National Gallery, An evening at the Opera at St Martin-in- the-Fields and an excellent performance of A Man of Good Hope at the Young Vic.

For many students, it was their first time experiencing London and the excitement never ended – from first time travels on the tube to sensational street food from various parts of the world.

As the trip coincided with Remembrance Weekend, an agreed highlight of the trip was having the pleasure of watching the compelling service at the Imperial War Museum which was then followed by free time exploring the museum.

The visit ended with a relaxing visit to the Shoreditch Electric Cinema.
