Liverpool school welcomes US Embassy

Students from a Liverpool school and sixth-form college picked the brains of representatives from the Embassy of the United States of America during a recent visit to Merseyside.

Economic counsellor, Kelly Adams-Smith, and colleagues from the Embassy recently met with students from The Studio school for a frank question and answer session to explore students’ opinions of the U.S.

The state-of-the-art school that specialises in creative media, gaming and digital technology was hand-picked from thousands of schools and academies across England to celebrate British-American relations.

Naomi Roose-Lloyd, cultural assistant, said: “It was great to listen to the thoughts and opinions of the sixth form students. We were very impressed by the topics of discussion and very much look forward to continuing work with the school moving forward.”

The event at The Studio school was part of a two-day visit to Liverpool for the Embassy of the United States that included meetings with key-figures from the University of Liverpool, representatives from the city’s museums and Everton Football Club.

The team, comprising of Kelly, Naomi Roose-Lloyd and Paul O’Hagan, economic analyst, will continue to visit Liverpool as part of the Embassy’s outreach program.

Jade Parkinson-Hill, director of enterprise at The Studio school, said: “It was a delight to welcome representatives from the Embassy of the United States to the school, and a privilege for The Studio school to be selected from thousands of schools from across England as a site for their visit.

“We actively encourage our students to be self-aware and proactive, enabling them to explore positive mind-sets that are essential for the industries of tomorrow.

“The inter-personal skills our students exhibited in this Q&A session with the Embassy of the United States showcase them as mature young adults who are excited by a digital, entrepreneurial future.”
