CED+ is a long-standing partnership between LCHS and schools in France, Denmark and the Czech Republic. The project enables students to study key aspects of the political, economic and social systems of participating countries. A series of conferences and allied visits sees the students travel to and learn more about the language and culture of each country staying with host families. Our most recent topic has been the subject of employment with in depth study taking place in Paris and Montaigu in France and Prague and Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic.

"Ten students and two staff will be travelling to the Czech Republic this March for the first conference of the Erasmus+ funded Food For Thought project.
Food For Thought is a three year transnational project involving French, Czech, Danish and English students aged 16 - 20.
The project explores national and transnational themes in relation to health, excercise, diet, food, drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
Our objective is to develop our students' awareness of health and well being by looking at three main aspects.
- Nutrition and well being. How healthy is a typical diet, how balanced, how do our social practises around food may impact our health
- Physical exercise and well-being.
- Alcohol, smoking and drugs and well-being
Throughout our three-year cooperation, studies of literature, art or cinema will shed light on our work. For each main topic, we intend to study how each of our schools and local / national authorities enhance the well-being of the students and how we can improve the situation by building upon the best practises of each member school.
Our desire is to cooperate and exchange systematically on each topic and subtopic to make better practises emerge through international cooperation / comparison / exchange. The rationale of the project is to compare countries to discover and evaluate the best practises in each member country and develop a greater insight into each of the members’ own culture.
The first conference takes place at Gymnasium Jiřího OrtenaKutna Hora, Czech Republic, between 12th and 19th March 2016"
