Modern Foreign Languages Exchanges
Gumley welcomes exchange students from France, Italy and Spain.
We are proud to have established links with three schools in France, Spain and Italy and each year Year 8 and 9 students take part in our Language Exchanges. The Exchange with Paris and Issy-Les-Moulineaux which is twinned with Hounslow has been running for the last 35 years!
We also have twinning with the town of Badajoz in Spain and Tavullia in Italy.
Our students host their pen pals for a week as they come to visit London with their school and they are hosted in return in their pen pal’s family in the target country.
This is a fantastic experience for our students to develop their language skills but also to develop their resilience and their ability to adapt to a different culture, and customs.
Each year over 50 students take part in the exchanges and it the most exciting experience for some of our students!
Our Partner Schools are :
- Collège Georges Mandel in Issy-Les- Moulineaux – Paris
- Istituto Comprensivo Pian Del Bruscolo – Tavullia – Italy
- Instituto Zúrbaran in Badajoz – Spain
