DULVERTON Middle School and All Saints First School greeted visitors from Europe last week.

It was part of a week-long International Camp based at the Dulverton Residential Centre.

Delegates visited the schools as part of their intercultural visit on European participation to compare rural schools in England to their own countries.

The group consisted of people from France, Italy, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Estonia and Turkey and included teachers, youth workers and social workers.

Together England organised the trip.

Judith Parker, manager of Dulverton Residential Centre said: “The extraordinary setting, the first class facilities, the Exmoor Curriculum and the joy of expanding the horizons of young people culminated in an informed and rich cultural experience for the visitors.

“The conversation later reflected the deep comparison with educational provision in poorer areas of the European Union.”

Jeremy Weedon, executive headteacher added: “We welcomed the chance to show our schools to visitors from Europe.

“We are very proud of what we offer our pupils, and our visitors were suitably impressed.”
