Online Immersion

Global Connecting

In a digital world, our sister company the Global School Alliance supports the online connections of thousands of schools in all corners of the world. By combining online collaboration and immersive experiences, members can develop transformational international partnerships.

The alliance provides a platform for sharing of best practices, resources and opportunities to increase school improvement, teacher development and student transformation.

Schools on the Sister School Partnerships or Virtual Partnerships programme can take advantage of their dedicated space on the platform to host online meetings, joint projects and teacher-to-teacher communications.

This is one of the most exciting things I have been involved in since entering the teaching profession. This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to help our students understand and prepare for the global opportunities that await them after they have finished their education.”

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.
