German Exchange Students come to Tomlinscote!

The German Exchange has been running at Tomlinscote for ten successful years! This year, twenty-seven students from the Robert Bosch Gymnasium, Wendlingen, came to Tomlinscote. The photos below are from their visits to the school, London and Brighton.

This is what the German students have written about the Exchange:

'After arriving we didn’t know what the next ten days would be like, but now, at the end of our visit, we can say that it was a wonderful time.

We had a good mixture of interesting school days and great activities, for example, we went on our trips to Stonehenge, Brighton and London.

We want to say thank you to all the families and everyone who organized the exchange. We enjoyed ourselves a lot and we are looking forward to the English partners coming to Germany in October. '
