On Thursday 7th June, Stanton Bridge was honoured to host a group of Hornby Scholar students from Warwick University.
The A.S.Hornby Educational Trust scholarships are awarded every year to English language teachers from outside the UK to study for a Masters degree in English Language Teaching, at the University of Warwick. The Trust was set up by A.S.Hornby in 1961 to support English language teaching worldwide.
The aim of their visit was to witness and experience firsthand, the British education system. They visited classrooms across the school and looked at teaching and learning; witnessed assembly; spoke to the English manager; EAL specialist and to the student council.
All the scholars enjoyed their visit and were left impressed by what they experienced. They were keen to leave feedback for the school, pupils and community:
“Everyone shares the same vision and are really involved in the students overall education”.
“The visionary leadership of the head teacher is very commendable. Her passion, care and drive is obvious. She has successfully managed to inspire her team”.
“The student council is a unique team that increases the creativity of all pupils”.
“Teachers’ love what they do and connect well with learners”.
It was a pleasure to be able to host this event for the Hornby Scholars and we wish them luck in completing their Masters successfully.
