Manchester High School for Girls


A group of 29 Manchester High School for Girls students travelled to the Business Live! Conference at Disneyland Paris on 26th February as part of their Business and Economics studies.

The conference was held at the Gaumont Cinema in the Disney village, where the girls listened to three guest speakers from leading companies; Superdry, The Walt Disney Company and Innocent.

Nicola from Junior Sixth explained: “It was really interesting to hear the speakers discuss their marketing activities, business planning and strategy, as well as their people and organisations as a whole. Hearing about the issues that face businesses today gave us useful, real life case studies as we prepare for our A-level Business exams.

She added: “After the talk, we were ready to enjoy Disneyland Park but some worrying, dark clouds were beginning to roll in. Within 20 minutes, storm Ewan hit and we were all drenched!

“The rest of our time at Disney was great fun. It was an informative trip learning from industry experts, and albeit a bit soggy, the park was excellent too.”
