2020 marks twenty six years of unbroken partnership between the Lytham Schools ( now AKS, Lytham ) and the Gymnázium Boženy Nĕmcové (Gybon) in Hradec Králové, the principal city of eastern Bohemia in the Czech Republic.
For all this time this partnership has been the only one between senior schools in the UK and the Czech Republic.
In October 2019 Lytham students travelled to the
International Science Seminar in Hradec Králové which has taken place annually since 1997. AKS will host the seminar in Lytham in the autumn of 2020.
In 2020 three Gybon students will travel to the UK as winners of travel scholarships, funded principally by former Lytham staff.
