The Gatwick School hosted their first School Exchange Trip last week.

Sixteen keen Catalan teenagers who arrived with the help of the UK High School Immersion from Leonardo da Vinci School in Barcelona, attended classes with their new buddies from Years 7-9, taking part in after school activities, on top of helping local children with their Spanish lingo.

Mr Roessler, Head of School, said that he was very pleased with the excellent relationships formed and how superbly the Catalan children had integrated into the student body. Mr Pickett, who organised the exchange said; “our aim was to promote multi-cultural understanding and show our students that Spanish is useful in and out of the classroom. They have proven to be a positive distraction at the school, as most students were very eager to engage with them and practice their Spanish." The exchange students visited the local area, took part in a treasure hunt and visited London at the weekend. The following week our TGS students went on their own Spain Trip and visited Seville.

The Gatwick School is looking forward to continuing the international cooperation in the future.

The schools first ever Year 11 cohort arrived at school in a range of luxury cars and enjoyed both the evening sunshine and refreshments alongside their parents, staff and friends.

Miss Newman Progress Leader for Yr 11, who organised the evening, said that she was so pleased that the students thoroughly enjoyed their Prom and both the girls and boys looked absolutely fantastic on the night. Head of School Mr Roessler, was very impressed with the organisation of a great evening and the students were a real credit to The Gatwick School.
