PUPILS from France swapped Aurillac with Retford as Ranby House welcomed visitors from Bassetlaw’s twin town.

In the week after the start of the summer term, Ranby House completed a successful exchange for the 19th time.

On Sunday 22nd April a party of 27 pupils and four staff from Collège La Jordanne in Aurillac arrived at Ranby House - welcomed by families of pupils at the school.

The group spent six days in Bassetlaw. As well as spending time in school and discovering the differences between education in England and France, the party made a number of visits.

Sherwood Forest, the Jorvik Centre in York, Wakefield’s Mining museum and Lincoln were all explored. The party also spent time shopping in Meadowhall.

The groups are pictured together in the Chapel at Ranby House before the Aurillac party departed on their homeward journey.

“This is a very strong link between the two towns and we look forward to many more years,” said a school spokesman.
