I am planning to take a group of 6th form design students to London on

Friday 6 July. We will visit the ‘New Designers’ https://www.newdesigners.com

in Islington, ‘Unto This Last’, https://www.untothislast.co.uk , a small furniture manufacturing/ social enterprise business in Shoreditch and come home via IKEA.


New Designers is labelled as ‘The UK’s most important exhibition for emerging design‘. It is an annual event showcasing the talent of a new generations of brilliant creative students and individuals, as well as a platform for design courses at universities across the UK. New Designers gives students the chance to talk directly to college tutors and graduates and find out everything you need to know about the higher education courses on offer.


Design disciplines on display include
→ furniture, product & industrial design 
→ spatial design & interiors 
→ graphic design 
→ illustration & animation 
→ motion & digital arts 


We plan to leave school at 8.30am and return at about 8.00pm. We will be travelling in the school mini bus to keep travel expenses down. Students are advised to bring a packed lunch and a bit of money for a meal at Ikea on the way home.

The cost of the trip will be £22.00 per student.
