The Leigh Academy – Chinese Students Exchange Programme

The Leigh Academy has once again welcomed staff and students from Beijing 57 school in China. The group of 9 students and two staff, Ms Wang Chunhua and Ms Zang Wenna have spent two days participating in life at The Leigh attending lessons, participating in sporting activities and teaching younger students about Chinese culture. Learning about the English education system and visiting a number of tourist destinations will enable our visitors to fully immerse themselves in British culture. This is then reciprocated when Post 16 students from The Leigh Academy return to Beijing in 2017.

This programme is one of many of the events we run under our International Links banner, because as much as we recognize that it is important to know your own community, and as well resourced as this Academy is we like to take students out of The Academy to experience different things.
