iTKA Sports Interns News
On Wednesday 9th May, our iTKA Sport Interns were fortunate to attend a tour of Twickenham Stadium and the Museum. The tour gave our pupils the opportunity to visit the president suite, sit in the royal box and even find out all about the players’ pre-match routines whilst sitting in the changing rooms. The tour finished with a visit pitch side before we headed to the museum to read more about the history of the stadium.

Sports Intern Louis Oette, Year 9, has reviewed the trips best bits:

On the 9th May, the sports interns, along with Ms. Marshall and Ms. Williams, went to Twickenham Stadium. Firstly, our tour guide, Mark, took us to floor 6 where we took a look at the stadium. The view of the stadium was amazing, especially with it being empty. We then went to the RFU suite where we found out how much it would cost for a seat – a massive £5000 per year per person! We then went to the presidential suite where we there was a bar and 4 amazingly painted pictures. Afterwards, we sat in the seats of the royal family, with Josh sitting in the seat where the Queen would sit. The changing rooms had nice and comfortable red seats with 3 televisions, 2 ice baths, 2 luxurious victorian baths and showers. We then went to the pitch side where we learnt how the pitch was made. Finally, we went to the museum where we played loads of fun games and learnt about different players from The English Rugby team such as Jonny Wilkinson.
