AELTC Trip 11.17

Bolingbroke Academy Trip to Wimbledon

On Monday 27th November, 32 pupils across the year groups spent a fantastic day at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon.  

Over the course of the day pupils had a tour of the grounds, including centre court - arguably the most famous court in the world - as well as the media centre.

Pupils on Centre Court

In the media centre, pupils sat in the press conference chairs and were served a volley of questions as if they were Wimbledon champions! This was both enjoyable and informative and gave the pupils a taste of what it is to be in front of the cameras as a sporting hero.

The pupils also spent time in the interactive museum and had a very interesting question and answer session learning about the tournaments of years gone by, the many famous players and visitors to Wimbledon and all of its many traditions.

The trip was a brilliant and informative trip with all pupils behaving brilliantly and being great ambassadors for the school.
