International Link with Freetown

Embedding international learning into our classrooms is key to deepening pupils’ understanding and respect for the world around them.

School partnerships give pupils an insight into another way of life. By working together on joint projects, pupils can gain a greater appreciation of cultural diversity and global issues such as migration, sustainability and conflict.
By bringing international learning into our classrooms, our pupils will learn valuable lessons about sustainability, mutual respect and citizenship.



Our visit to Freetown

A while back Bricknell Primary School linked with Obez Memorial School in Freetown, Sierra Leone, as part of Global Schools Partnership ran by the British Council.

This has been a fantastic opportunity to learn about life and education in another part of the world.

We were recently involved in a group trip to Freetown were two of our members of staff visited our partner school Obez Memorial.

Here is a collection of images from the trip:
