Students in Clevedon have been accepted onto a Mandarin Excellence Academy scheme.
Clevedon School will teach 20 year seven students in Mandarin and will enjoy a visit to China next year.
Nationally, one per cent of students are accepted onto the scheme run by the Institute of Education, in London.
The school was accepted after the application process assessed the quality of teaching at the school, the success of students in modern foreign languages and the expertise of Mandarin and history teacher Josh Coughlan.
He said: "The students are also looking forward to meet Mandarin students from other schools during the year and then going to China next year.
