Hulme Hall French department has a long established link with Collège Jules Verne situated in La Croix St. Ouen ,about one hour to the north of Paris. For several years Y9 pupils in both schools have corresponded with each other, practising their letter writing skills and developing friendships which have even led to invitations to stay during the summer holidays.

In December Y9 sent photos full of festive cheer along with their second letters to their French penfriends.

The link was originally established to exchange letters in order to improve reading and writing skills but we now have regular Skype sessions plus are eagerly awaiting the arrival of students and staff from Collège Jules Verne in March during their visit to Manchester.
