Liskeard School and Community College’s Arts Faculty travelled to London for the annual visit to some of the country’s top galleries and theatres. Thirty students travelled by train, bound for two incredibly full days of exploration, including Harrods, The Mal, The National and Portrait Gallery, School of Rock at The New London Theatre, The Tate Modern, a boat trip on the Thames and shopping in Covent Garden.

On our first day students took in many of the wonderful sights that London has to offer and marvelled at the opulence of Harrods. They then had a lovely walk up the Mal, in the early evening, to have a look at Buckingham Palace and to take photos. Following a meal at Pizza Hut in Leicester Square, the group had a fantastic time watching School of Rock, which was full of amazing, high energy performances and gave the school some good ideas for the upcoming Liskeard School version on the 14th and 15th December!  They left the show absolutely buzzing with excitement.

The sun came out for the visit to the Tate Modern and the group had the opportunity to see the sights of London from the viewing platform, one of the gallery’s newest attractions.  The students really enjoyed the variety of the work on display here, including an installation made entirely from human hair. The Turbine Hall had a new installation, by Danish Arts Collective, Superflex which consisted of lots of swings, designed to encourage social interaction.

To finish the visit, Liskeard School had some free time in Covent Garden, enjoying the sights, shopping and busking and then it was back to Paddington and onto a very busy train back home! 

Thanks to Mrs O’Shea for organising the trip, for Mrs Crawshaw for organising “School of Rock” and to Mr Bond and Mr Moore for all their help during their time in London.
