Barcelona March 2015

Very very early one cold Sunday morning in March, we set off from the Academy with 29 students on an adventure to the sunny coast of Spain. We were immensely privileged to spend three days in the company of such wonderful young people who were excellent ambassadors for the Academy. We think the students enjoyed the trip – but don’t take our word for it! (Mr Ford, Mr Watt, Miss Steele, Ms Dubois)
