Thirteen students and two teachers from a school in Germany enjoyed an action-packed exchange visit to King’s Ely.

The special guests from the Gymnasium Remchingen school enjoyed a trip to the beach at Hunstanton in Norfolk and visits to Cambridge and London.

Head of German at King’s Ely Senior, Neil Urwin, who organised the exchange visit, said: “Our German visitors were amazed by King’s Ely and everything that the school has to offer, and thoroughly enjoyed the cathedral services they attended.

“We are hoping that this will become a long lasting partnership and that many of our own students will benefit from the experience of spending some time in Germany, improving their language skills and learning more about the culture of their beautiful country.

“Special thanks to all of the families who hosted one or more of our German students, and for their help in organising some of the group activities.”
