We are delighted as a school to have been awarded grant funding via the Turing Scheme project. The Turing Scheme is The UK’s global programme to study and work abroad enabling students to develop new skills, gain international experience and boost their employability. The scheme recognises widening access opportunities as a key priority and aims to increase the participation of disadvantaged groups.
Funding can be used towards travel, accommodation, supply cover costs, administration, and resources for the trip, and even passports and luggage costs for some of our more disadvantaged children. We are hoping to use this funding towards a trip to Granada, Spain next year. Further details will follow. We are also thrilled to have been awarded the Intermediate level of the International School Award. This award recognises our school's efforts to include international work as part of our curriculum and embed it within our school's culture. The International School Award programme supports schools in fostering an international ethos throughout the school and embedding it within the curriculum. Mrs Marsland, our International Coordinator said 'We are delighted that our international efforts have been recognised and are now striving for the full Accredited level of the award which will recognise our commitment to international education throughout the entire school. We have established partnerships with schools in Spain, France, Nepal, Abu Dhabi, the Netherlands, and The Philippines and are excited for the new and exciting opportunities available to our students.
