Here they are taught a creative curriculum by London teachers with a focus on Art, Music and Creative Writing. The Chinese students are greatly impressed by the creativity and interactive nature of the lessons.

The visit is a great learning experince for the London based teachers as well , Teacher coordinator Lauren Dyer “ all the teachers involved greatly enjoyed teaching the Chinese students and found them to be very engaged particularly with the creative activities in Music, Art and writing. We look forward to them coming back in the future” .
