At Honywood School we pride ourselves on offering our youngsters authentic opportunities for them to develop their language learning skills in a real life context. Indeed, we currently offer two Exchange programmes for our Cohort 9 learners; one to Paris for French and one to Heidelberg for German. These Exchanges are the result of excellent relationships with our partner schools in France and Germany, which have been developed over a number of years and generations and which continue to thrive year on year.  The Exchange runs on a home to home basis, meaning that our youngsters stay with a French or German family for a week and then learners from our partner schools visit us later in the year, being hosted by Honywood families. The design of the trips not only provides those involved with two week-long opportunities to build relationships with their Exchange Partners, but also offers learners genuine experiences of culture, tradition and language in a French or German family. At Honywood we will continue to grow our Exchange programme across all languages studied, as we continue to encourage our learners to take part in such an unique and exciting opportunity. We also extend our thanks to the local community for their support with the continuation of such well established and successful Exchange programmes with France & Germany
