Higher Education Sport students visit London

Our HE students enjoyed a fun and productive trip to London last week.

The four-day trip was packed with a variety of different activities in the capital.

Students visited Wembley Stadium, the Olympic Stadium, the British Museum, the Imperial War Museum and notable landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square.

The trip was designed for students to experience sport in terms of Stadia, regeneration and redevelopment, whilst gaining and appreciation for London and its culture.

Dan Connolly, HE Pathway Leader, said: “It was a really good visit, where students experienced something far different to their everyday life.

“Students conducted themselves excellently throughout the visit and were a credit to the College, it was a pleasure to supervise the trip.”

Daniel Guest, Level 6 Sport, Physical Education and Health student, added: “The Olympic Stadium gave us an overview of the lasting legacy left by the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“It was great to see everyone enjoying the trip together, it was an amazing trip that provided so many great memories and experiences.”

Corey Hurley, a Level 5 Sport student, said: “I had a great time, it was brilliant to have some fun, learn the history of London and visit some historic sights.”


Sport wasn’t just the focus – the students enjoyed a trip to the Royal Museum

Jason Littlewood, a Level 5 Sport student, said: “I’ve come back from the trip with a sense of belonging and the realisation that it is important to take all the opportunities offered to us whilst studying.”
