International School Partnerships

True Education Partnerships work alongside the Chinese Ministry of Education to carefully select Chinese schools who are hoping to create strong ties with a UK education establishment. We invite UK schools to join our Sister School Partnership programme, host a Chinese school or visit China on one of our immersion trips. Not only do we find you a partner school, arrange travel, book accommodation, provide a translator and secure visas… we also offer full support before, during and after your programme. You will be allocated a dedicated School Account Manager who assists throughout your project to ensure success. Our programmes are directly applicable to meeting the expectations of the Ofsted framework.

Without a doubt the highlight was the visit to our Sister School, the opportunity to experience the Chinese culture was hugely enriching for our students.

I would recommend this trip to other Headteachers because it gives you a first hand experience of education in another culture. This comes with a wealth of ideas for developing teaching and learning, as well as curriculum.
