Exchanges

As part of our thriving Modern Languages programme, we offer a variety of exchanges to boys studying French, German and Spanish. There are two French exchanges to Paris, a German exchange to Hamburg and a Spanish exchange to Extremadura. The take-up has been excellent for these trips and boys report learning so much as a result; both linguistically but also in terms of their own characters as they adapt to life in a foreign culture.

Trips at Merchant Taylors’ are hugely popular with a great variety of destinations (including Cuba, Nepal, West Indies, Argentina, Brazil, China, Madagascar in recent years). The exchanges complement these and give boys the chance to gain a deeper appreciation of other cultures.
