To make up for today's inclement weather, we're taking the opportunity to look back to sunnier times.
During the summer, 25 Year 10 and Year 12 students spent 10 days on an exchange trip in Bamberg, Bavaria. We have close links with the Kaiser-Heinrich-Gymnasium and hosted their students earlier in the year.
Students were welcomed and soon felt part of the community. The trip enabled them to immerse themselves in German life by trying local foods and experiencing the very different approach at a German school. Whilst at school they saw science, maths, English and also German lessons in action. Some of our students also had the opportunity to help local primary school children with science and English projects.
Out of school, our students went swimming and had an insight into Bavaria's history and culture through visits to the medieval city centre of Rothenburg, Würzburg's Festung Marienberg and the Residence in Bamberg.
Long term friendships have been made, and our students returned to the UK with a real buzz about the country whose language they are studying.
