Interested in being paid to host a young Spanish teenager from 20 June? 

Two companies are currently recruiting local families they will pay to host a young Spanish pupil. As a school, we are happy for your child to bring a Spanish partner into our school for a maximum of 10 school days during the final weeks of term. For the placement to succeed it is obviously important that your family and your child want to ensure that the Spanish child has a very good experience while in Manchester. Whilst we do not endorse either company, the vast majority of placements have been successful. However, before agreeing to host you should be satisfied with your choice of company and all arrangements. Both companies’ details are accessible via these links. Please feel free to contact our Director of Languages, Tony Elston, if you would like further information: aelston@urmstongrammar.org.uk .


STUDENT LINKS EXCHANGE PROGRAMME: This year, our school is supporting Student Links’s programme, meant to find for each pupil interested a life-long Spanish friend in order to enrich their lives: Student Links will find an “amigo” for you child -same age, gender, interests and hobbies- and our school will let this child attend along with our pupil as a “visitor” for 2 weeks -the rest of the stay, 7 working days after having been attending our school, will be spent on a local “work experience” arranged by Student Links-. GREAT ALLOWANCE -800 hundred pounds- in order to turn the whole experience into a lot of fun for all the family with days out, showing the student round… HOSTING PERIOD: from Friday 21st June to Wednesday 17th July. PLUS! the second year, when the Spanish student wants to come again to stay with you by the same means, your child is entitled to a reward holiday week in Spain at their “amigo’s” starting with the group going back to Spain on 17th July for the low cost of 300 pounds all included: flights, insurance and Student Links 24h assistance. More info and applications on line: www.studentlinks.es or contacting Mrs Ana Martin on ana@studentlinks.es or on her mobile number 00 34 607 710 241″
