SIXTH-formers from Doncaster headed across the Atlantic for a long-haul school trip to the USA.

Teenagers from Trinity Academy, in Thorne, spent a week in New York, taking part in the trip as part of their A-level business studies course.

Among the visits during the trip was behind-the-scenes peek into the vaults of the Federal Reserve Bank, where $275 billion of gold bullion is stored. The party also visited Little Italy, the Empire State Building, Times Square, the United Nations building and Central Park.

Head of business, IT and enterprise, Mark Furniss, said: “We like to offer our students the best possible opportunities and we were delighted so many were able to go to New York, one of the best places in the world to get an insight into banking.”

Student Leanne Kitching said: “It was a great atmosphere and the trip gave us a real insight into business and banking in one of the world’s most exciting cities.”
