I have a spanish friend's daughter coming to stay for a few weeks in the summer. He wondered if she'd be able to go to school with ds2. Now, obviously you have no idea about this particular school, but wondered, in general, if state comprehensives are approachable about this sort of thing?!
Ds2 is in year 8 and it would only involve 2.5 days at the end of term. I think they should be alright especially as it is a language specialist school! Has anyone done this? He did want her to come over and go to school for 2 weeks, but I think that is a bit much to ask.
My DCs school specifically send out a letter each year say it will refuse all such requests that are not part of one of the schools own twinning programmes. (France, Germany, India, Tanzania, Canada, Spain)
However it has a lot,of high achieving MC parents and probably gets a hundred or so such requests a year otherwise, and note everyone makes the requests at the end of the year either.
Ds2 is very studious and the girl coming to stay is the same.
100 requests a year - crickey! Ds1 is in year 10 and he doesn't know of anyone who has done this apart from the school's own organised school exchange. He said they'd say no, but I think it will be fine, especially as it's for the last 2.5 days of term and I don't think they do much.
Would be fine at our (grammar) school. We have a few students every year not part of the proper exchange programmes but who are staying with students - or staff - of the school. Obviously, the better their English, the more they will get out of the experience.
