Amber Club visits London

Fifteen students visited London during October for a taste of life in the big smoke. The school’s Amber Club, run by our academic advisor, Kate Wakeham, arranges activities for a small group of our Year 10 and 11 students designed to encourage thinking outside the box.

The group spent three days in London, visiting the Natural History Museum, The National Gallery and Trafalgar Square, The London Eye and The Houses of Parliament, where they were met by former student Scott Dawes, who now works as a Parliamentary Researcher to Stephen Gilbert MP.

“The trip was a great success,” says Mrs Wakeham. “Our students commented that they gained a lot from the experience and we were impressed with how maturely they conducted themselves.”

Rosa, 15, says: “I really enjoyed the Houses of Parliament, and loved finding out where the Queen and famous politicians over the years had stood.”
