Sixth Formers Enjoy New York Experience

Ruislip High’s Sixth Form team organised a successful trip to New York City and Washington DC from Saturday 6th April – Friday 12th April 2019. 

Nineteen students from Years 12 and 13 visited several landmarks and experienced the cultural activities of the ‘Big Apple’. 

Students enjoyed famous sites including the Empire State Building, the United Nations HQ, NBC Studios, the Tenement Museum and the High Line aerial park. Students took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and loved the Broadway Theatre show, ‘Waitress’. Students also visited the 9/11 Memorial Museum. 

Moving on from New York, the group travelled to the King of Prussia Mall in Philadelphia and had a guided tour of Washington D.C. including the Washington Monument, Capitol Hill, the Supreme Court, the Vietnam War Memorial and the White House grounds. 

Students were accompanied by Mr Hankin and Ms Hill. 

Mr Hankin said, “The students represented the school superbly and were enthusiastic throughout. They were moved by the 9/11 memorial in particular. The walking tour of Washington D.C. was a highlight for many students, and they were a bit surprised by how small the White House was!”
