On Thursday 27th June, three of our lucky pupils headed off to Burberry’s head offices in Pimlico.

Pupils had the chance to investigate different items of clothing and how they are made. Every team had to look at their individual items and describe each little detail and how they would achieve the look.

There was also a talk from one of the head honchos at Burberry who discussed their career journey and the different ways to achieve your goals. The presenter also gave tips on how to present and show confidence even when stood up in front of people you don’t know.

All three pupils presented their ideas which won them one of 30 places on the day. They all did amazingly and represented the school spectacularly.

To top the day off everyone taking part received a Burberry scarf to take home.

“It was a very interesting day and gave me good insight into future careers in the fashion industry”

“I learned a lot more about design and how to pursue a career in fashion”

“It was really fun to go on the trip and learn about the fashion industry. If the competition ran again I would participate. It was great to win a scarf too”
