SUPER-LUXURY car firm Rolls-Royce welcomed more than 60 schoolchildren for a look behind the scenes last week.

The March CE Primary School, located on the doorstep of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, hosted its partner school in St Malo, France – Ecole Privee Ste Jeanne D’Arc.

The Year 6 pupils asked lots of questions and practised their language skills as they toured the company’s head office and viewed the manufacturing plant.

Andrew Ball, global corporate communications manager, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: “We were delighted to welcome the schoolchildren and to give them a taste of luxury manufacturing. We were particularly pleased to note the high level of interest in engineering and hope that the schoolchildren will consider future careers in the manufacturing industry.”

Head teacher Peter Edgington said: “We have an excellent relationship with Rolls-Royce and we are very grateful for the opportunity to visit the manufacturing plant. The children treated their French visitors to a quintessentially English experience, beginning with scones and cricket, visiting Bath and Stonehenge and ending on a high with a tour of Rolls-Royce.”
