YOUNGSTERS from Stockton Sixth Form College are living the high life in the US as part of an educational visit to New York this week.

A visit to Harlem, a tour of art galleries, and dinner on Broadway, are all on the menu for 28 students taking part in the college's annual trip to Manhattan.

Nine arts students are making the trip, and the rest are studying geography and travel and tourism.

Steve Rickerby, head of geography and travel and tourism, said: "We have a very busy programme, but it will not be all work and no play.

"Evenings planned include a dinner on Broadway with singing waiters, the lights of Manhattan from the Brooklyn Bridge and shopping in the last afternoon. There will not be a minute to spare."
