 Supported by HSBC’s community investment programme the Stoke Damerel students are among 40 young people aged 14 to 15 have been selected from schools nationwide to take part in the opportunity to helm the Tall Ship.

The 200ft ship departed Southampton docks on Sunday 11 September on its journey to sail along the south coast, visit a European port in France, Belgium or The Netherland before sailing up the Thames on Monday 19 September past iconic landmarks and under Tower Bridge.

The students, accompanied by Science teacher Mr Thomas, will take part in all aspects of sailing during the 10-night voyage and will work shifts including getting up at 4am to complete duties.

Working together the young people from the College, joined by students from Ackland Burghley School, Kingsbury School and Sports College and Sirius Academy, will be living in cabins of eight and assigned to watches.

Alison Coates, senior manager HSBC Global Education and UK Community Investment said: "We are delighted to have supported the Tall Ships Youth Trust for 15 years, allowing more than 700 young people to take part in HSBC supported voyages. 

"The Voyage of Achievement not only provides young people with a chance to improve their self-confidence, develop team working skills and meet new people: for some it is a truly life-changing experience. Our support of the Trust is part of our wider support of educational programmes, reaching over 50,000 young people annually in the UK - helping them to fulfil their potential by providing access to education, developing life-skills and entrepreneurship, and promoting international and cultural understanding.
“It is important that our employees are able to get involved with the programmes we support, and we are so pleased that the Trust's voyages allow HSBC employees to support young people through mentoring and coaching,  while improving their own leadership skills."

Tim Law, Marketing and Operations Director of the Tall Ships Youth Trust said: “The support of HSBC over the past 15 years has been extraordinary and is hugely appreciated by the Trust and indeed, the hundreds of young people that have been able to go on board the Voyage of Achievement for an experience of a lifetime.”
