We started at the Salford Imperial War Museum, being immersed in the story of war seeing various art work illustrating events, as well as propaganda from the war. There were also a lot of artefacts from the war such as tanks, medals and weapons. We then headed to the Lowry where the artist Laurence Stephen Lowry work was presented as well as being able to find out about the meanings behind his work and how he made it. The trip then headed towards the Manchester City Art Gallery, There were multiple floors and rooms filled with different types of art, models and design. This art gallery was great because next to each display there was a small text stating the artist and a brief description of their work, this was useful because it let us research further into different artists. I found this trip really useful as I was able to relate to different artists and make links into my future work on my course. The Creative Media students were lucky enough to be shown around Quay House at Media City by BBC Manchester Radio presenter Mike Shaft. On the unprecedented personal tour he showed them different areas including the BBC Breakfast studio and Radio 5 Live & local radio’s recording studios. They were also lucky enough to witness Mike talking with guests during an ‘as-live’ recording, scheduled for broadcast on his radio show on Sunday morning. He then explained the process of editing the recordings and how they’ll get to air, as well as the roles of Researchers and Producers working on his show. It was an interesting first-hand experience of what working in the Media industry could be like for the students in the future. (February 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 9794 )

Fabulous day trip for our year 10 students. Thoroughly engaged with all the activities and resources provided from the classroom learning through to the museum exhibits. Behaviour was exemplary and students were in awe of what they saw. (January 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 9125 )

Pupils learned about what it was like to live in the 2nd world war. The day covered all the intended aims. (May 2018 - Primary - Post No: 3373 )




It was completely suitable for our needs. They had small workshops set up with volunteers that were more than happy to talk to the children and where very helpful. All staff where present. 26 pupils attended the trip - MP was absent. (February 2018 - Primary - Post No: 1428 )
