Worldwide exchanges

Round Square schools connect to create opportunities for students and teachers to develop international understanding, self-confidence and a range of interpersonal skills through studying or working on exchange at another school in our network. Exchanges are arranged flexibly between schools, often taking advantage of variations in academic timetables so that visits can take place whilst their own school is not in session.
