Students Visit Sky Studios at the O2 Arena


On Thursday 27th March, Year 7 students enjoyed a fun-filled day out in London as part of Kingsbury High School’s ‘Excel Day’ programme.

Students started their day by watching the Changing the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace; some were even lucky enough to catch a glimpse of The Queen as she was driven by, just a few meters away.

Students went on to visit Sky Studios at the O2 Arena, London, where they went behind the scenes to see how TV is made. Students experienced what it would be like to work behind a camera and become a newsreader by presenting for Sky News HD and Sky Sports News.

They ended their day with a cable car ride over the river Thames in The Emirates Air Line.

Students can watch their Sky News HD and Sky Sports News videos on Planet eStream (login required).
