Over the past years George Abbot School has built up an excellent network of partner and link schools around the world
why is it important?
We believe that by having a wider international community, our students will be better placed to become Global Citizens of our modern world. We also passionately believe in the importance of learning one or more foreign languages in today's society and we are recognised for our strength in Modern Foreign Languages. This is a testament to our dedication and enthusiasm for the wider world.
Our partner schools around the world
the voice secondary school, Tanzania
Daniel Mpanduzi, who has worked closely with us since 2010 has set up a new school 'THE VOICE SCHOOL TRUST'. The Trust aims to promote a modern education and equal opportunities for all members of society. This includes promoting the cause of albino students who often face considerable hardship in Tanzania.
This is a new venture and the school, which is now fully registered has been commended by local authorities. Whilst we hope that THE VOICE SCHOOL TRUST will be self funding eventually, initially the trust is seeking support to develop its infrastructure.
Jinyuan Senior High School, Shanghai, china
Jinyuan Senior High School is one of eleven recently modernized boarding schools in Shanghai. It is in the Putuo district of Shanghai, which is one of eleven districts in and around Shanghai. The district consists of 146 schools serving a population of one million people. The total population in Shanghai is eighteen million!
A school was originally built on this site in 1904 and was known as the Hua Tong Public School, but has been renamed and modernized in recent years. The stated aim of the school is ‘Optional Education, Overall Learning, Outstanding Development’
University of British Columbia Transition School, canada
George Abbot's link with the Vancouver at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Transition School for Gifted and Talented maths and science students was established in 2007. Since this date there have been two student visits to Vancouver and George Abbot has hosted two visits from UBC students to the UK.
No further links or projects are planned at present but we hope that we may explore the possibility of liaising further with UBC Transition in the future.
