Welcoming Pen Pals

A group of eight students from the Gymnasium Oldenfelde in Hamburg, Germany, spent a taster day at King’s in June, to get an insight into British school life and to explore the similarities and differences to their own school.

Students from Removes to fifth year have been writing to their pen pals since last September and relished the opportunity to finally meet some of them. They joined their partners during the school day and enjoyed a traditional afternoon cream tea and cricket match, organised by PE prefects Laura Scott (L6WAL) and Aled Bennett (L6GRO).

We hope the visit will encourage more King’s German students to take part in this wonderful project and strengthen our partnership with Gymnasium Oldenfelde.
