Welcome to the German Exchange page ...
Week: 13 - 18 May 2018
We are so pleased to welcome once again students and teachers from our German partner school, the IGS Helpsen. This is the twelfth year of our annual exchange. The German group arrived in Wolverhampton on Sunday evening. On Monday morning they came into school and the English students excitedly met their German partners. They went to lessons together and got to know one another. After school we went bowling together, an activity everyone enjoyed.
On Tuesday we went to Oxford for the day. We walked around the University Colleges, visiting, among others, Trinity College, Christ Church College, Wadham College, the Bodleian library and the Ashmolean museum. Both English and German students were so impressed at what they saw and so excited to see where the Harry Potter films had been filmed. We then had a picnic lunch on the banks of the River Thames, with geese and goslings for company. Students then had time to explore this lovely city further with their partners. The weather was beautiful all day.
