King Harold Academy welcomes students from France
The King Harold Academy welcomed 24 Year 9 students and their teachers from the Collège SainteMarie in ChavagnesenPaillers, Vendée, France.
The visitors were met by their future pen pals before they played games, socialised and mixed with other students.
They were all given a tour of King Harold Academy and enjoyed the opportunity to experience a day in an English school.
Some French students loved the idea of a school uniform while King Harold's English students loved the idea of a non-uniform school.
At lunch time the visitors were given a taste of English cuisine when they enjoyed a fish and chips lunch delivered by a local restaurant.
In the afternoon, the Expressive Art department invited the visitors to attend a rehearsal.
