Linking with Freetown

We are pleased to announce that Bricknell Primary School is now linked with Obez Memorial School in Freetown, Sierra Leone, as part of our work with the Global Schools Partnership. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about life and education in another part of the world and we have already received letters from all the pupils in the school, telling us about their lives and their interests.


As part of the project, we have also been successful in obtaining the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms grant which enables a teacher exchange programme, providing opportunities for staff from Bricknell and from Obez Memorial School to visit each other’s schools and share educational experiences.

This is a hugely exciting project and we look forward to making new friends in Freetown.
