Partnership with Elpro International School in Pune, India
One of the ways we are committed to broadening horizons at Wapping High School is by building partnerships with other schools across the globe so that our students can really become global citizens. We are honoured to have established a partnership with ELPRO International School in Pune in India and we are excited to be working on a range of projects between the students and staff of both schools.
Partnership with Geneva
This year we established a partnership with a high school in Switzerland called Ecole de Commerce Nicolas Bouvier.
Students have been exchanging letters and practising their written French.
We were also delighted to host the students from Geneva for a visit where Wapping students delivered lessons and quizzes as a way to get to know their new friends.
