London Experience

Incredible memories were made when our student visited the Body Worlds Exhibition and the Natural History Museum last week.

86 Year 9 and 10 students, plus 9 members of staff travelled to the Capital to visit the Gunther von Hagen’s original Body Worlds Exhibition and The Natural History Museum.  Body Worlds contains real human specimens, including; whole body plastinates, individual organs, organ configurations and transparent body slices.  The Exhibition took students and staff through an exciting journey of discovery under the skin, providing a wide-ranging inside into the Anatomy and Physiology of the human body.  Students wandered through 6 galleries with over 200 exhibitions using individual audio guides which gave them the educational material that linked to their PE and Science GCSE’S.

Miss Jones, the trip organiser said “Body worlds is a wonderful opportunity for students and staff to explore, discover and learn all about the human body and health, the students thoroughly enjoyed this very unique experience”.

Cody Lou and Tia (Year 9 Sports Science students) - “We found Body Worlds interesting and helpful for our sports studies coursework.  It showed us how the body works and reacts to exercise, disease and illness.  We loved it!”

Miss Withers (Trainee Teacher) - “Fantastic trip! I will definitely be organising this trip in my new teaching post!”

After lunch we had a tour of London by coach, passing historical landmarks and key tourist attractions before making our way to the Natural History Museum. The students had a fantastic day and the academy are very proud of how the students fully engaged in the day and had an experience they will talk about for years to come!
