A school in Daventry has welcomed a large number of overseas visitors throughout last week as part of a European project.

The Grange School has been involved in a two-year project being run by The British Council.

The Comenius Project has involved the school linking with schools in Poland, Turkey and Spain.

It is part of a scheme run by the European Union to create partnership across Europe and to raise the standards of education.

Students and teachers from Spain, Poland and Turkey have spent a week at The Grange School.

This has enabled the European children to work alongside pupils from the school.

Headteacher Gaynor Yates said: “The programme aims to develop knowledge and understanding of different European cultures and languages, and keep young people gain skills for their future lives and careers.”

Among the activities enjoyed by the foreign visitors included a trip to Daventry Museum in New Street on Tuesday last week.

This saw the children get the chance to learn about the history of the town and to see some of the artefacts. They were given a talk by the current deputy mayor of Daventry Cllr Ron Fox.

Mrs Yates said: “This exciting week also involved a visit to Warwick Castle.

“This was in order to experience a little piece of British history.”
