We said ‘adios’ to our four Spanish visitors on Friday. Olaya, Lucia, Clara and Helena came to TSS for five weeks to gain first-hand experience of going to school in the UK. The girls who study at Colegio Estudio in Madrid were fully immersed into school life; attending lessons and activities, even participating in extra-curricular activities such as badminton, fencing and climbing.

To ensure the girls experienced British culture at its best we even introduced them to afternoon tea and along with Year 10 students they made some delicious shortbread, scones, muffins and cookies which they sampled and then took home to their host families. Olaya, Lucia, Clara and Helena enjoyed their stay with us and said the school was very welcoming and the teachers were great. The exchange was a huge success and TSS look forward to hosting more foreign students in the future.
