Aspire leads a cluster of 6 Schools within Hull on behalf of the British Council.
We are responsible for applying for funding opportunities for the cluster to enable International Visits through the Global Partnership Connecting Classrooms program.
We co ordinate CPD sessions for the schools and meetings as well as supporting the planning of reciprocal visits between Hull and Sierra Leone. As a cluster we have developed individual school projects and an over arching project based on the SDGs 3 and 4.
We have helped to bring about change in the education system in Freetown through our visits, resources, team teaching and the deliverance of our training sessions at the British Council International Conferences in Freetown and Hull.
Recently our maths dept have collaborated with N.K.Singh Memorial English Preparatory Secondary School,Kathmandu, Nepal. The project was about Time: Quest-Calculation of Longitude and Time.
Our students really enjoyed lessons via Skype where they had the opportunity to engage with students from Nepal. Both sets of students loved asking questions about lifestyles whilst answering academic questions about the topic. Students exchanged work, photos and letters. We are really looking forward to our next collaboration with Kathmandu!
