Hosting Spanish students for a week in March 2020​ - The Spanish department is taking part in an
exchange this year. In December 16 of our students are going to spend a week in Vigo, Spain and will be
staying with Spanish host families for a week. The school are coming back to visit us however they are
bringing more than 16 students so we are asking for volunteer host families. The students will be visiting us
for a week at the end of March (approx 25th March - 1st April) this is the last week of school before Easter.
You would host them for the week and take part in normal family activities and it might be nice for you to
show them around the area at the weekend. They do not need to have their own room as students will be
matched in age and gender. There will be some group activities also arranged nearer the time. We are hoping
to find families to match one boy (year 11/12/13) / 3 boys year (9/10) / 2 girls year (9/10). This is a fabulous
opportunity for any student but especially those interested in language and culture. If you are interested in
hosting a student please email me at [email protected]
Thank you so much for considering this and supporting such a great experience for the students.

Uckfield College Carol Service 2019 - Hosting a German Student
We have a longstanding exchange relationship with a school in Germany who come and perform with us in
the carol service every year. The German students stay with host families during their 4 nights in the UK and
we are looking for hosts for this year between the 14th - 18th December.

This tradition is into its 17th year and in order to be successful we require a group of host families. Our
students have visited Germany in the recent past and were all graciously welcomed and looked after by their
German hosts.

If you are interested in hosting a German student for this years' carol service please read the a​ ttached letter
and respond using the G​ oogle Form​ in this link.
Please don't hesitate to contact me [email protected] with any queries.
