A group of Orwell Park Year 7 pupils and accompanying staff are today making their way back from a visit to Mayo College, Ajmer, Rajasthan, India. Mayo College has been called the Eton of the East since it was founded in 1870 by Lord Lytton. Mayo College is one of the oldest public schools in India and is an all boys school.
The group left Orwell Park at the beginning of half term and will return to school late on Wednesday night. They have had the most amazing time immersed in life at Mayo College and in the past couple of days have also visited the Taj Mahal, Jaipur, the markets, and spice shops. We thank the school for the kind hospitality shown to our pupils and staff. It has been an exciting few days!
Three years ago, pupils and staff from Mayo College visited Orwell Park, spending a week with our pupils and visiting the local area. We are delighted that we will be welcoming students from the school to Orwell Park again this June.
