GERMAN students have had a taste of life in England.

Sixteen teenagers from a grammar school in Darlington's twin town of Mulheim toured Hurworth School, as part of an exchange visit.

The youngsters, with teachers Connie Bril and Erich Bittemann, had a look round the village school, as well as Hummersknott School and Language College and Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form.

Hurworth teacher Rita Rees said: "They came to us with the hope of Hurworth becoming a partner school for them. It's gone really well."
