International Links

In recent years we have made links with schools in South Africa, Germany, Brazil and USA. As a Federation, we have recently developed an exciting  link with Mphnadika school in Zambia through the support of the Bath and Wells Diocese. Our Headteacher, Ms Joskey and the Headteacher of our link school, Mr Niyerenda, have been in touch with each other learning about the two schools via Whatsapp and email. We have shared some of our books with the school as a gift.

We have welcomed visitors from France through the twinning of the village of Wrington with Villeneuve-lès-Béziers in the south of France (Languedoc region).  Our former specialist language teacher has visited this school in France.


As a Christian school, some of our international work is linked with the church. As part of our ‘Send a Cow’ charity work we welcomed a Ugandan farmer to our school who showed us how to build a keyhole garden. This is now used to grow vegetables which are harvested in the autumn for our charity Harvest Lunch. The School Council have organised Wrington's involvement in Operation Christmas Child.


We regularly raise money for international charities and this gives us opportunity to deepen our knowledge and understanding of those whom our fundraising supports. Examples include the African child education projects through Comic Relief, Mary's Meals (which supports our link Zambian School) and Toilet twinning (toilets across the school are twinned with toilets in developing countries which were funded through school donations. This was first initiated when we were lucky enough to have new toilets in the lower school.).


We maximise opportunities for international curriculum enrichment and the pictures below give a flavour of international learning at Wrington. An important part of our curriculum across our whole federation is the study of the UN Sustainable Goals for Development, originally inspired by two members of staff visiting the United Nations.


The school was generously sponsored to adopt a small gorilla as part of Bristol Zoo’s international conservation project. Can you see Francis below? The inspiration for his decoration came from leaves in the school grounds!
