As part of our programme from Connecting Classrooms School Partnership, the British School "Brighton Bilingual School" and the Mexican School "Centro Educativo Monarca, A.C." have received a grant of 1,500 GBP each to visit each other. By the end of October, Miss Lauren will visit Mexico as part of this great collaboration that has been going for years.
School partnerships helps educators to share best practice with their colleagues at home and overseas and to learn from education systems in other countries. By entering into a global partnership pupils will gain a fuller understanding of other countries and cultures, as will their teachers.
Partnerships between schools in the UK and other countries bring lasting benefits for young people wherever they live. In particular, pupils get a chance to tackle challenging global themes, explore their rights and responsibilities and prepare to work in a global economy.
We offer financial support to schools that can demonstrate a strong commitment to their partner schools.
