partnership-work-with-university-of-wuppertalThe Friary is delighted to announce that we have established a teacher training partnership with the German University of Wuppertal which is located in the North Rhine-Westphalia state.

This scheme will see three German teacher trainees spending a term working in our school to enhance their own professional expertise and to prepare them for a career in the classroom.

On the other hand, our school benefits from their particular subject expertise, which will provide support in lessons across the curriculum, as well as focus days and experiences for our students and those of our local primary schools.

Jason Cain, Assistant Headteacher, said: “This partnership is an important development for our school and reflects our commitment to develop our own professional expertise by working with graduates and university teams beyond our own national borders. The University of Wuppertal is highly respected and can only add to our work at our school.”
