Harry Potter trip

On Thursday 8th December, some of our Year 7 students who are studying Spanish took part in a trip to the Warner Bros. Harry Potter studios in London. They have been covering this as part of their literature unit and it certainly helped to "bring it all to life".

We started our day at 05.15 leaving by coach from Heaton Manor, with one brief coach stop for our first caffeine hit of the day (teachers) and a McDonald’d breakfast (students) we then continued on our way.

The studios were magnificent and the students were delighted with everthing that they saw and experienced. Seeing everything from their favourite books and films brought to life made their day and the costumes and special effects completely blew their minds (the gift shop blew their pocket money!)

The day was a complete success, mainly down to the fantastic students who took part, but also to the amazing staff who gave up a massive amount of their free time to make the trip possible. A fabulous ‘thank you’ shout out goes to: Hannah Wolland, Andy Gaskell, Amanda Straker and Elaine Nicholson for making the trip so great and also massive thanks to Faith Thompson for the amazing Harry Potter invitations and Helen Donnelly for all of our admin.
