On Monday 8th June 8 students from Redcar Academy (along with students from 2 other Trust 4 Learning schools, Rye Hills and Sacred Heart) set off on a 2 day trip to London. The purpose of the trip was to gain an insight into public speaking and debating in preparation for the ‘Voice of Youth’ competition which is to be held on Friday 3rd July at Redcar Academy. During the visit, students were given a guided tour of the Houses of Parliament and sat in the public gallery during a live government debate in the House of Commons before meeting up with local MP Anna Turley for a Q&A session.
The trip was jam-packed with other activities too including a visit to ‘Ripley’s Believe It or Not!’, a guided sightseeing tour of London and an evening meal at Planet Hollywood restaurant before visiting the New London Theatre to watch an evening performance of War Horse. All students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the trip and are now busy preparing for the interschool debating competition (Good Luck Redcar Academy students!).
