WESTCLIFF High School for Boys has announced the launch of its next summer expedition to China.

It follows the success of its first “Bridge to China” trip earlier this year in conjunction with the Confucius Institute. Students from Years 10 to 13, along with accompanying members of staff, embarked on a two-week China summer camp in July.

Assistant head, Kerrie Mumford, said “The visit was an exceptional experience for our intrepid explorers. It was exhausting but overall a thoroughly enjoyable visit of a lifetime which has created lasting memories.”

The students flew to Beijing and then undertook a whirlwind tour of all the sights, including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall

Headmaster Mike Skelly said “We are delighted to be able to offer our students the opportunity to travel further afield to such an interesting destination as China. Such trips away from the School environment encourage our students to be globally aware.”
