The Bassingbourn Village College Spanish exchange trip has run for a “very successful” second time to Albacete, in the sunny south-west of Spain.

Under clear blue skies, students visited the beach and science museum in Valencia before travelling to the city of Albacete to meet their exchange partners and host families.

The students wasted no time in getting to know their new friends through completing a treasure hunt, visiting the famous penknife museum and eating lots of Spanish food including churros con chocolate.

A spokeswoman said: “Well done to all of the pupils involved, who showed great resilience and enthusiasm in communicating with their partners and immersing themselves in Spanish culture.

“We look forward to welcoming the staff and students from Escolapios school back to Bassingbourn Village College next February.”
