On Tuesday the 27th February Norton Hill School was once again host to a group of teachers from across Europe as part of the Erasmus+ program. Teachers from Germany and Malta spent the day working with teachers from the ICT, Politics, Business, Outdoor education departments with some also spending time working with the senior leadership within the school.
The aim of the day was for teachers on both sides to share expertise and best practice to help improve their schools. Feedback from the European teachers was once again overwhelmingly positive. They were particularly impressed with the Computing and ICT teaching on offer, the extracurricular opportunities offered to our students across all ages, the positive learning environment created and last but no means least the politeness our students. Sophie Davis, lead teacher for international education, said, 'Once again the day extremely positive for both Norton Hill staff and the European teachers. Hopefully the links formed on the day will lead to some exciting partnerships with our European counterparts going forward’.
This is another example of the several international opportunities offered as part of its International School Status. Norton Hill is one of only a handful of schools nationally that have achieved and maintained the highest level of this award.
