Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

We have had a very cosmopolitan week at Lady Lumley’s as we are currently hosting parties of students from both France and Spain

We have 27 French exchange students and 3 staff from College Camille Claudel in Latresne near Bordeaux.   

Over the weekend the students and staff stayed with host families, on Monday they visited York and on Tuesday they had the day in either Lady Lumley’s or Ryedale school.  Wednesday they visited Castle Howard and on Thursday a day out to Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay.

The Spanish exchange students arrived here from Manchester on Tuesday and will leave on Monday.   There are 13 students in the equivalent of Years 10 and 11 accompanied by two staff.   The Spanish School is IES Angel Corella Colmenar Viejo Madrid.   The visitors had Wednesday in York, Thursday on the coast and will spend Friday in school.  During Friday they will be in lessons during Period 1, in Period 2 they will be in a Spanish lesson and on Friday afternoon they will take part in a treasure hunt in Pickering.

It has been a great experience having these students here and I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff and parents who have acted as hosts.
