Access to Higher Education and Science students from KCC visit London

Access to Higher Education and Science students from KCC travelled to London last week for four days full of activities visiting some of London’s most significant tourist sights and venues.

The annual trip, kicked off with a visit to St Paul’s Cathedral and an evening performance of School of Rock at the West End. The highlight of the trip came when students had the chance to visit the Houses of Parliament and have a tour and Q&A session with Knowsley MP George Howarth followed by a River Thames cruise.

The trip which is organised with activities in relations to modules that each student will cover over the duration of their course, including Science, Psychology, English and British Values.

The group also visited ZSL London Zoo, The London Eye, The London Dungeon and also experienced a walking Jack the Ripper tour.

Danielle Parle, Section Leader, who accompanied the students on the trip said, “We organise this trip for the students every year as it is a fantastic opportunity for students to take part in activities relating to their academic route of study.”

Students described the trip as “an amazing experience” and “brilliant from start to finish.” With one student adding, “The organisation of the trip was brilliant, all the excursions were well thought through and fantastic. I had too many favourite parts to choose from and I have made some lovely memories.”

Staff and students made the most of their last full day in London with a trip to London’s latest attraction, The Shard Viewing Gallery and concluded the trip with dinner at The Comedy Store.
