Leyton Sixth Form College hits the slopes

Leyton Sixth Form College had its first ever skiing expedition as students tackled the beautiful Italian Alps for a week of physical exertion and sensational skiing.

Kumba Hutt, English teacher and organiser, said: “None of the students had ever skied before, but within the week all had skilfully mastered the sport and the slopes.”

Chris Price, vice-principal, said: “The trip was a fantastic success.

“The college provides many opportunities for student travel and this year our young people have also been on a visit to New York.

“We aim to give students the widest possible opportunities to broaden their horizons.”
