Sixth Form students have a very special opportunity as part of the enrichment programme to take part in the Bi-Annual USA Trip. Over the February half term students visited New York City, Philadelphia and Washington DC. A group of 40 students, supported by four Staff, travelled to JFK New York on Saturday 10th February, returning to Heathrow on Saturday 17th February 2018.

The Trip allows our students the opportunity to visit New York and Washington DC as a Cultural Experience, to visit major points of interest such as the Empire State Building, Wall Street and the Statue of Liberty. Washington DC offers the chance to further explore the historical and political life of the USA through memorials, the White House, Congress and the Smithsonian Institute. This year, the students additionally enjoyed the opportunity of watching 'School of Rock' on Broadway, experiencing the awesome 'One World Observatory' from One World Trade Centre and eating at the Famous Ellen Star Dust Dinner Restaurant on Times Square. As well as watching an American Collegiate Basketball Match between American University and Boston, visiting the Senate in Session in the Chambers in the Capitol Building, an emotional walk and talk around the Trio of Monuments, including Lincoln, Jefferson and the new Martin Luther King Memorial, as well as visiting historic Georgetown, all with just a little bit of shopping thrown in for good measure!

Collectively, the group developed independence, understanding and a real sense of adventure and excitement.
