MORE than 400 people had a day to remember when Lowestoft's Roman Hill Middle School went on tour to London.

Pupils, staff, governors, DreamworX project workers and local PCSOs all travelled to the capital in 12 coaches - laden with hot chocolate, water and freshly-baked snacks from the school kitchen which set them up for a fun day.

MORE than 400 people had a day to remember when Lowestoft's Roman Hill Middle School went on tour to London.

Pupils, staff, governors, DreamworX project workers and local PCSOs all travelled to the capital in 12 coaches - laden with hot chocolate, water and freshly-baked snacks from the school kitchen which set them up for a fun day.

Once there, separate groups took in the sights surrounding St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge and Westminster. After a picnic lunch all groups met up and made their way on foot to The Lyceum theatre to watch The Lion King.

Children were wide eyed at the thrill of seeing so many of the famous landmarks.

Roman Hill, which subsidised the whole trip, will be closing next year due the Suffolk Schools Organisation Review.

The trip was organised as a celebration of the final year at Roman Hill Middle with four year groups.

A souvenir brochure was given to everyone on the trip as a memento of this once in a lifetime school event.

The school said it was grateful to PC Mark Gamble and five police officers who supported the trip, and to Andy Dorning and Jem Stevens from DreamworX.

Paul Herod, head teacher, said: “Days such as these are remembered for ever ….. 'The day the school went to London' will be a part of every child's life for ever and live on in the Roman Hill Community memory.”
