BVC hosts French exchange programme

Students from Bassingbourn Village College welcomed their counterparts from a French secondary school this week.

The exchange programme with Collège Joseph Bédier, near Grenoble, is in its second year and involved over 70 French students.

The students enjoyed their five-day visit to the UK which included trips to Duxford, Cambridge and London – with a traditional afternoon tea in Grantchester as an additional treat. The French youngsters spent the evenings with their host families, sampling British family life and traditional food.

The French students and their teachers also spent a day in Bassingbourn Village College where they were given a presentation of what happens in the school before taking part in a treasure hunt, sporting matches and, finally, a Maths and English lesson.

BVC MFL teacher Karenza Nutley said: “The exchange was a great success, we loved having the French students here and we are all looking forward to visiting them in France later in the summer.”
