Whitworth Park School and Sixth Form College in Spennymoor travelled with GB Sports Tours over the summer. We took 95 students and 11 staff on a memorable sporting and educational adventure to Barcelona, in Spain.
Over 8 days the school took part in training sessions with RCD Espanyol Coaches at their 1st team complex which also hosts their Academy and played 8 friendly fixtures versus local Spanish opposition.
In addition, the group visited the home of reigning European champions FC Barcelona. The tour of the Camp Nou took them behind the scenes of this magnificent 99,000 seater stadium, gaining access to the changing rooms, players’ dugout and press box and they also visited the new and interactive museum.
Cultural experiences were also part of the itinerary with a visit to the famous ‘Las Ramblas’ were the group witnessed street performers, local market stores and practiced their Spanish / Catalan! The sun was shining every day in Barcelona and what better way to cool down and take a break from the football activities than visiting Europe’s biggest theme park ‘PortAventura’! The group spent a day at the park making the most of the adrenaline filled rides. They also had some time to spend on the beach and swimming pool.
We look forward to organising their Real Madrid Pro-Experience for 2016.
