A London adventure was on the cards for children from an Alnwick school.

Fifty Year 7 and 8 pupils from the Duke’s Middle School visited the capital last month, departing on Wednesday, June 25.

During their three-day-stay, the group managed to visit many tourist attractions.

These included the London Eye, Tower of London, Globe Theatre, St Paul’s Cathedral and Covent Garden.

They also had a Thames River Cruise and went to two West End shows – The Lion King and War Horse.

A visit to the Warner Brothers Studio for some Harry Potter-themed fun was also on the itinerary.

Anne Puddephatt, assistant headteacher and special educational needs coordinator, said it was an excellent trip and paid tribute to the pupils’ behaviour.

She said: “Although an exhausting few days, the pupils were a credit to their families and to their school.

“Members of staff were frequently stopped by members of the public who asked where the pupils were from and complimented their exemplary behaviour.”
