Year 8 & 9 Trip to London

Last week the whole of year 8 and 9 went to London on an Expressive arts trip. We visited TATE Britain so the Year 8 students could see the Lowry exhibition as they are studying his work this year. We then saw The Lion King at the Lyceum theatre as Year 9 studied this musical in drama and music last year. Everyone really enjoyed their day and got a huge amount out of the experience.
