Post 16 Students Visit New York

After nearly two years of anticipation, the 6th form Philosophy and Ethics visit to New York took place in February half-term. Students toured Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. 

Whilst it was cold, the snow on the ground made everywhere look very beautiful, especially Central Park and it was a magical moment when the snow began to full down on us on Fifth Avenue. Students  visited the 9/11 memorial which was very moving and has certainly changed a lot since the last visit. The Memorial Tower is now complete and stands as high as the original Twin Towers. 

On the last day students went up to the top of the Empire State Building which certainly it an iconic part of the New York skyline. 

The trip was a great success and the students were a credit to the school. They were friendly and polite and the majority of New Yorkers were very pleasant and helpful.  I am sure that all the students will have fond memories of their trip to the city that never sleeps - New York.
