Evangelisches Gymnasium Siegen-Weidenau
Country: Germany
Town: Siegen

We are looking for a partner school in the United Kingdom for exchange with our 9th graders (eventually 10th graders). Many of our teachers have experiences with exchange programmes with partner schools in Poland, Israel, Spain and the United States and we´d love to give more of our younger students the opportunity of not just travelling to an English speaking country but in particular learning from and communicating with peers there firsthand. Due to the current situation we will not be travelling abroad this school year, but we´d love to get in contact with schools that are interested in building a partnership for future years. We´d also be interested in possible online partnerships for starters (e.g. small projects, pen pals, introducing our schools with video clips).Our school is situated in Siegen, a city of about 100.000, in the south of North Rhine-Westphalia. We have about 700 students and 70 staff including trainee teachers. The atmosphere at our school is respectful, open minded and familial – a good atmosphere and encouraging and supporting the individual development of our students is very important to us. We are surrounded by beautiful nature and many forests but also have close connections to larger cities such as Cologne, Bonn or Marburg. We´ve also often done activities such as little sports events, climbing workshops and city trips with our exchange groups before and could very well imagine doing bilingual or bicultural projects and workshops together during future visits here or to the United Kingdom, e.g. projects and workshops on our shared history, culture, cultural diversity etc. Especially in times of political tensions and Euroskepticism we strive to find ways to connect and learn from each other. Please don´t hesitate to get into contact if you´re interested. You can also find more information on our website. www.evgym-siegen.de (I´ll happily provide more information in English whenever needed)
