A formal link has been established between the two schools, strengthening the twinning arrangement between Bristol and Guangzhou, China's third largest city.
Bristol and Guangzhou, located in southern China on the Pearl River, have been twinned for more than ten years and have developed firm business links, but this is the first time schools in the two cities have set up a formal link.
A delegation from Guangzhou, including the principal of DongFengDongLu Primary School and the deputy mayor of Yuexiu District, visited Clifton High Junior School for the first time in October 2011 and signed a sister school agreement.
Pupils communicate with their Chinese counterparts via email, on-line videos and letters. They are also involved in joint projects.
