On Saturday 12th March Year 10 headed to Gladbeck for their German Exchange week.
Below are some photos so far from their trip.
A visit to the Schalke Arena in Gelsenkirchen - the home of the Schalke Football Team. The pitch moves outside the stadium when it is not being used so that the grass can grow. This means the stadium can be used for concerts - Coldplay are playing there in a couple of months.
On our second day in Germany we went climbing at Kletterhalle Neoliet. It was great fun and everyone climbed very well. In the afternoon we met our host partners as they finished school at 1.30 pm.
Our visit to Zeche Zollverein in Essen, an old coal mine. We enjoyed a very interesting tour of this UNESCO world heritage site - although it was very cold!
