In January 2016 , Elm Education welcomed 80 students and teachers from Beijing No 80 High School to the UK for a three week study programme.
The students and teachers were split between three UK schools: Notting Hill and Ealing High School, Kelly College and Buckswood.
At each school the groups were invited to sit in on lessons and go on school trips with the British local students. In addition Elm Education set up a full programme of activities to ensure the Chinese students and teachers were able to make the most of their time in the UK.
The trip was a great success and it is expected to be repeated in 2017.
Meanwhile the success of the exchange with Notting Hill & Ealing High School means that a group of girls from the UK will visit Beijing No 80 in October this year.
