On a wet Wednesday morning, 30 students made their way across London to Madame Tussauds. Students experienced the A-list celebrity treatment; having paparazzi take their photo before having the opportunity to take their own photos with the celebrity waxworks.

Students started off in the Hollywood zone, before entering the magic of the film and party zone. Many questions were asked by teachers in the YouTube zone, but they redeemed themselves in the world leader and royal zones.

After a spirited debate in the music zone (Beyonce vs. Adele) students jumped into one of London’s iconic black cabs on the ‘Spirit of London’ ride – an exciting journey through the capital’s history. From the comfort of our taxis, students witnessed the historical and cultural events that have shaped London into one of the greatest cities in the world.

Students then moved on to the 4D cinema experience where every sense was engaged during Tussauds’ very own Marvel picture.

Overall, a really enjoyable day for both staff and students.
