Our Trust has a partnership with the University of Wuppertal, in Germany and each year we have three trainee teacher placements in our schools as part of their programme.

These trainees play a hugely active role in their English home school – The Friary – but also go out and about to local primary schools to deliver a German-themed day of language, culture, geography and more besides.

Alex White, Greywood Primary School Improvement Officer, said: “The Henry Chadwick students thoroughly enjoyed their day and the school are now planning to learn even more about Germany having had their appetite whetted. We are a Trust that values out children experiencing different cultures, ideas and identities and this project is simply a part of that commitment.”
