Opening of Livingstone Academy
On Friday 22nd September, Jessica attended the opening of the new Livingstone Academy in the Lansdowne area of Bournemouth Town Centre.
The school is the fruit of a collaboration between Sir Ian Livingstone and the Aspirations Academies Trust and aims to be the country's first digital academy.
Jessica took part in a tour of the school's buildings and spoke to students at work using state of the art technologies like VR headsets and 3D printers. She also took part in a student court drama production and visited a range of the schools facilities with other community stakeholders.
The school's emphasis on creativity, innovation and digital skills is well placed to support Bournemouth's reputation as a burgeoning digital and creative industries hub, as well as contribute to the future of its economy.
