Students at a Highbridge school have enjoyed a trip to see some of the most historic sights in Rome.

Sixth form students at The King Alfred School, in Burnham Road, took in some of the ancient city’s most iconic monuments including the Colosseum.

A school spokesman said: “Enjoying hot, sunny weather the students particularly enjoyed visiting classical sites including the Colosseum, the Forum and the Pantheon.

“Students also hold great memories of Rome nightlife and highlights included visits to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Trastevere and Gianicolo Hill with its breathtaking views over Rome.

“Students are now looking forward to the trip to Berlin in 2018 as a reward for working so hard on their A-levels.”

The school will be holding an open day for year seven pupils, parents and carers from 6-7pm on September 25 in B block.
