Comparing experiences with students from India

Bedales was recently visited by Townley Grammar School in Kent and a delegation from their link school, Shri Ram in Delhi, who were keen to see Bedales as part of their wider exploration of the UK, and see the differences to their own schools; both girls’ schools, one city based, another on the outskirts of London. During their visit they enjoyed a tour courtesy of our 6.1s, including the Design, Art and ODW exhibitions from Parents’ Day.  As the sun was shining, Bedales students took the visitors into the Orchard to discuss experiences, culture and the educational systems of each of our schools.  With our own developing links with India, this provided staff and students with a great opportunity to see an exchange in action and get a feel for the types of discussion that could arise.
