They visited the tallest building in Europe.

A team of four students from Chiselhurst and Sidcup Grammar School were awarded with a trip to the top of the Shard after winning a geographic quiz.

Max Reed, Huw Sutton, Callum Rest and Alistair Lower held their own in the competition, which saw thirteen teams from eight schools in Bromley compete.

The quiz was organised by the geography department of the Charles Darwin School.

The visit to the Shard was sponsored by London Biggin Hill Airport and their tour certificate was presented by the airport’s estates manager Katy Woolcott.

They were accompanied on their tour by their geography teacher Zoe Partridge.

Ms Woolcott said: “We have been delighted to sponsor the top prize for this geography quiz and congratulate Max, Huw, Callum and Alistair on proving their expertise on the subject and also Zoe as their form teacher.”

The Shard is 1,016 feet high and is the tallest building in Europe.

It provides a 360-degree view with a 40-mile perspective across Greater London and beyond.

The building was designed by master architect Renzo Piano.
