Amy Johnson – school info

Discover the story of the 1930s flying sensation. Recommended for students aged 5 to 11.

Drama character Amy Johnson with her aeroplane, Jason, in the Flight gallery

Chocks away! In 1930 Amy Johnson became the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia. Her adventure will fascinate your students: crash landings, international fame and fighting for recognition in a man's world.

Our costumed character portraying Amy Johnson brings to life this achievement in a lively encounter that includes plenty of opportunities for students to ask questions.

This event is recommended for supporting classroom work about flight and famous people. The performance will be tailored to the age of your pupils.
