Blackpool & Fylde College trip to the University Centre campus.

This term we have had many visits to local colleges and the pupils have especially enjoyed our Blackpool & Fylde College trip to the University Centre campus. The tour was lead by Sofia Merraoui who inspired our pupils with the facilities on offer. First we explored the Performing Arts and Music department, pupils were able to observe lessons taking place in the fantastic working theatre and spend time in the recording booths as well as having opportunities to speak with both tutors and students. Next we visited the Media Production, Film and Television Department where we were able to ‘act’ in the TV Studio and feel like real stars! We finished the tour in the stunning art gallery experiencing Richard Weston’s exhibition ‘All That Glitters’ Portraits of Drag Artists. This has motivated our pupils to include this within their current GCSE Photography course and all pupils now feel excited at their future prospects.
