Students visit Anfield during trip to Liverpool
A group of 12 students went on a two-day trip to Liverpool, where they played football against students from local schools and visited Anfield, home of Liverpool Football Club.
The students, who are now in Year 8, went on the trip during the last week of the Summer Term.
Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) Stuart Baker, who is manager of the Year 9 and 10 football teams, ran the trip.
Mr Baker said: “We set off at 5.30am on Wednesday morning and we made our way straight to Archbishop Beck School in Liverpool for an early 9am kick off.
“This gave the boys a chance to experience playing against students of their own age but in a different county. Although they lost the game it still had its benefits.
“We then took in a tour of Anfield stadium and museum and the boys enjoyed looking around the dressing room and asked some good questions.”
On Day 2 of the trip the boys visited another school to play another football match.
Afterwards they went to the city’s Albert Docks to visit the museums and to have dinner.
Mr Baker said: “The boys were very well behaved throughout this part of the trip and maturely spent their time in the museums.
“The trip was very successful and although it was tiring, the boys gained some good experience from it.”
