On Monday 16th October, twenty five Year 10 students embarked on an Italian journey with Miss Mills, Mr Taylor and Miss Fusano. The students had the chance to experience the charms of St. Mark’s square, to see the romantic balcony where Romeo swore his love to Juliet and visit a local school, ITIS Zuccante, where they made friends with a group of very welcoming and friendly Italian students.

This trip ended on a high  as we spent the day at Gardaland, Italy’s biggest theme park!

Here are some quotes from students about the trip:
