Clevedon students have earned funding to link up with schools across Europe.

Clevedon School has become part of the European Commission-funded Erasmus+ Programme which will give them the chance to meet students from twin towns Epernay, Ettlingen and Middelkerke.

It will end with them creating a magazine to illustrate what each school, town and region has to offer.

Headteacher Jim Smith said: “We are absolutely thrilled about this.

“It is a fantastic opportunity for Clevedon School to work even closer with the Clevedon community and for our students to explore opportunities right across the continent.

“Well done to all the students and staff making this happen.

“They have worked tirelessly for a long time to bring this about.”

Head of languages Paola Zottarelli added: “This is really great news.

“It will give students wonderful learning opportunities to learn about diverse nations and cultures across Europe.”
