Business pupils in the Big Apple
A GROUP of Accrington Academy’s Sixth Form students took a bite out of the Big Apple when they travelled to New York as part of a business studies trip.
Fourteen pupils and three staff members visited the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Centre and Statue of Liberty as well as taking in the Broadway show, School of Rock.
In support of the business studies theme, other highlights included a special marketing tour of Macy’s to show how the world famous department store markets itself, as well as a trip to Wall Street to understand the development of New York’s financial district.
Accrington Academy’s head of school Nicola Palmer said: “As part of our commitment to providing our students with an education with character, we feel it’s important to enhance their studies through a range of supporting activities, of which the New York visit is one, helping to give those taking part an inside look at the world of high finance.”
