Trip to Greenwich Royal Observatory!

Students from Nightingale Community Academy visited Greenwich Royal Observatory. Students Bradley and Brandon did a write up on the trip:

We left the school grounds and went to Tooting Bec Station. We took the London Underground to Bank and the DLR to Cutty Sark Station. On the DRL we saw what looked like tilted towers and huge sky-scrapers made of glass.

When we arrived in Greenwich and saw a huge boat called the Cutty Sark. We also saw the River Thames and several boats sailing up and down.

We then walked up a giant hill which had the Greenwich Royal Observatory on it. The Observatory had a red ball on top of it, at a certain time of day it would rise up to show people the right time. We then stood over the Prime Meridian, the line that separates East from West. We ran all the way down the hill, then we checked out the River Thames and split up to go and eat.

Bradley and Brandon went to McDonalds, Jakima, Kavaun and Nick had Nando’s. We all had wings and chips, Kavaun had a drink that was half Fanta and half Coke.

We walked to the train station and went back to school.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
