Year 9 and UKAT Sixth Form's visit to Athens

A group of Year 12 students from the UKAT Sixth Form and Year 9 students from Brompton Academy have been taking part in the Athena Award this year; together with student ambassadors and lecturers from our Lead Sponsor, the University of Kent.

Students have been developing research and creative writing skills, and also writing their application for a scholarship to visit to Athens where the University of Kent has a campus.

The group visited the Acropolis including the fabulous new Acropolis Museum, the Agora, Theatre of Dionysus, the National Gardens, the Panathenaic Stadium exploring and dining in the Plaka as well as the changing of the guard outside parliament, followed by writing workshops against an amazing backdrop of the Acropolis.

This superb experience is being followed up in Terms 5 and 6 with workshops and a special event.
