Banking, business and football for Year 11!

Business Studies students from Year 11 visited London for a packed two day trip during the half term break. The purpose of the trip was to focus on marketing, finance and macro-economics.

The group had extended spectacular views from the London Eye due to a technical difficulty that left them suspended quite high up for 15 minutes! The visit to Nike Town developed students’ understanding of sponsorship which is a focus for their controlled assessment. The show, Kinky Boots, at the Adelphi Theatre in the Strand, taught the group how businesses need to constantly reinvent themselves in order to meet the demands of consumer needs.

Day two started with a visit to the Bank of England museum in all its splendour. The visit to Chelsea Football club included their Business of Football tour. There was a chance to sit in the dugout as well as the hot seat in the press room. No trip to London could be complete without some time for shopping on Oxford Street too!

Mrs Hawley reported:

Our students were wonderful ambassadors for Bradon Forest. They were polite, responsible and lots of fun to be with. The appreciation they all showed at the end of the trip was overwhelming and was a reminder of the reason we busy teachers came into the profession in the first place. Thanks Year 11 for being so fab!

Aisha Jeng said, "I loved learning about the history of the Bank of England. The hotel accommodation was nice and the teachers treated us like adults."

Tom Keen shared, "The opportunity to learn about the Bank of England and putting finance into perspective at Chelsea Football Club. The show was amazing and the shopping great. We packed a lot in."
