Current Y5, Y6  & Y7 – Design & Technology Bologna Trip 2024

In October 2024 the Design and Technology Department of The New Beacon is proposing to take a group of year 6 and 7 boys to Bologna. For more details and a provisional programme of events please click here. Alongside the obvious design and construction elements, boys will explore the flavours of Italy at Fico Eataly World with an ice cream making masterclass. Let’s face it, who doesn’t love gelato!

The proposed departure date would be the 19 October 2024, the start of the October half term. This email is to gauge interest, and depending on numbers, the overall price would be around £1300. To that end, should you be interested please email Mr Barratt at

Mr Barratt has responded to those who have shown an interest, and awaits confirmation.
