The MFL Department organises a trip abroad each year to give students the opportunity to practice their language skills and experience a different culture. This year students visited Geneva in Switzerland. One of the highlights of the trip was a tour led by professors of Cem to learn about the Large Hadron Collider.
Broadening Horizons outside of the classroom
Our relationship with Great Oaks Charter School is based on our shared values of project based learning for our key stage three students and building transferable life skills that go beyond the academic demands of the current curriculum. We are planning an exchange to New York for our students.
Horizon Scanning and International Visitors
Our teachers are passionate about sharing their expertise and also about learning from other practitioners both in the UK and beyond. Leaders at Wapping have visited schools in the USA and Scandinavia and the school has also hosted an international SAIL conference on education. Each year the school hosts visits from teachers from Italy who are keen to see the way learning takes place in our British classrooms and to exchange ideas. Some of our students are bilingual Italian speakers and they have taken the lead at showing our visitors how we learn at Wapping.
