A unique cinema trip gave students an insight into the film industry.
Year 11 BTEC performing arts students from Nightingale Academy, in Edmonton, were invited to a special screening of Murder on the Orient Express at the Odeon, Covent Garden. After the screening, the great grandson of playwright Agatha Christie, Mathew Prichard, held a Q&A session with students.

Robyn Marsden, head of faculty, said: “When we arrived at the cinema, there was a copy of the book on each person’s chair and students were also given badges. The event was being filmed and some of our students were interviewed after they had watched the film. “They enjoyed the film and really liked the trip.”
The students were taken on the trip, organised by Film Festival, as a reward for completing their final performance assessment in front of Year 9.
