The Isle of Man's education system has been described as 'second to none' by visiting school leaders.

A 40-strong group from Escuelas Catolicas Madrid (ECM), which serves 300 Roman Catholic schools in and around Madrid, visited the Island last week.

They met Graham Cregeen MHK, Minister for Education and Children, and were briefed on the Island's education system by senior officers.

The group visited primary and secondary schools to see education in action, spending time in classrooms, joining pupils for lunch and talking to them about their learning.

They also visited University College Isle of Man (UCM), where they enjoyed tea prepared by hospitality and catering students.
