Sixth Form German Exchange Trip
Two of our Sixth Form students took part in a very exciting Erasmus event in Germany. This took place at our partner school in a place called Freigericht near Frankfurt. During the week, the students were set lots of challenges such as carrying out chemistry experiments at a German University and even learning to dance the Chachacha.
We were well looked after by our German hosts, who showed us around lots of interesting places and let us in to see some of their lessons. There is an Erasmus event planned to take place at The Ridgeway in 2020, where students will be coming from the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Italy and Belgium. This is a wonderful opportunity to travel abroad and improve your language skills as well as boosting your job prospects, so you should get involved.
