Arts Students Tour Capital’s Cultural Highlights

Arts Students Tour Capital’s Cultural Highlights

Just before Christmas a group of 78 Year 11, 12 and 13 students, studying one of the Arts subjects at either GCSE or A level, plus staff, headed to London for a 3-day educational trip. The packed programme gave all students, whatever their discipline (dance, drama, music, technical or art) an opportunity to experience shows, take part in workshops and go on behind the scenes tours, as well as take in some of the sights of the capital.

Show highlights included ‘Les Miserables’, one of the longest-running shows in the West End and the ‘Lion King’, known for its amazing puppets, costume and set design, plus students were able to take part in a dance workshop with one of the cast from Les Mis, attend a lunchtime music recital, visit the Royal Opera House, home of the Royal Ballet, V&A Galleries, Royal College of Music as well as take a guided walking tour around some of the key landmarks. The group even managed a trip to Harry Potter World exploring the sets and costumes.

It was an action-packed itinerary but a great opportunity for students to witness first hand different aspects of their chosen discipline. Speaking at the end of the trip, Mr Lee, trip organiser said, “I was so impressed with the behaviour and conduct of the students on tour and they took every opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture that our capital city has to offer. Whether they are an artist, actor, dancer or musician there was something for everyone to experience and, hopefully, this has built on their aspirations to develop their skills within the creative and artistic industries.”
