Cronton Students Visit the Big Apple
Two groups of students from Cronton Sixth Form have just returned from an action packed trip to New York. The students who are all studying performing arts and humanities at the College have had the opportunity to stay in magical city and visit some of the most famous sites in the world including Wall Street, the Statue of Liberty , Times Square and the 9/11 Ground Zero Tour.
Performing Arts Students in New YorkMatt Plant, Director at the Centre of Excellence in Performing Arts at Cronton Sixth Form, said, “The students had a fantastic time in New York. While we were there we managed to strengthen our relationship with the Musical Theatre department at New York University and Paul Gordan who is the composer of our forthcoming Broadway musical Jane Eyre.
“The students had the opportunity to try their hand at ice-skating and after dining in the famous Ellen’s Stardust Diner, which the students loved, we had the opportunity to watch the musical ‘Chicago’ on Broadway before both groups of students met up in Manhattan to share their amazing adventures.”
Dawn Venables, Head of Humanities at Cronton Sixth Form College said, “We have managed to visit so many places on our wonderful trip including a trip to ground zero where we were accompanied by a fire officer who had been on duty on the day of the attack and helped victims out of the buildings This was a very emotional visit and our students were very respectful and dignified throughout.”
