Year 10 and 11 pupils visited Saint Petersburg, Russia in February 2016. As always it was a great success!
The Russian side made huge efforts to provide a programme, which was rich in traditional Russian culture. This included visits to ballet or opera, museums and surrounding areas. Our students greatly benefited from this and many of them are still in touch with their partners, some are even planning to visit St. Petersburg independently.
Our students had a chance to spend some time in the school and experience the “spirit” of traditional Russian school life. The in-school programme was well-organised, and everyone was very efficient and friendly.
Most importantly, students in both year groups mentioned their increased competence and confidence in dealing with spoken Russian.
