Students visit British Airways Engineering

On Tuesday 19th November, 34 of our Y9 Engineering students had the opportunity to visit the engineering department at British Airways at Gatwick Airport. This is the first time the department has hosted a school visit.

Students were taken airside and had a tour around three aeroplanes discussing the engineering and technology of each. They were lucky enough to board a Boeing 777 and examine all areas include the cockpit and crew rest areas. Our students asked many testing questions to understand how planes work and how to become an engineer.

The future of engineering looks bright at Sackville. Thank-you to Mr Treen for organising the visit.

If there are any other engineering companies who could accommodate a visit from Sackville students we would be delighted to hear from them!
