Birkdale Wins Tour Operator’s Photography Award

The Modern Foreign Languages department's trip to Cantabria, Spain in May produced an unexpected but very welcome bonus. Birkdale is very pleased to announce that we have been awarded the prize for Tour Operator's 2015 school trip photograph competition.


Taken by Mr Armitage, Head of our senior school Art Department, the photo shows a group of S2/3 (Y8/9) boys eagerly filling in their Spanish workbooks on a town tour of Santillana del Mar. 

Mr Armitage said: “It was such a wonderful trip. I am not an accomplished photographer but the photograph I submitted really did capture the history and cultural experience the boys and staff were immersed in. It is really wonderful for the school to be recognised in this way”.
