Chinese Teachers visit Sibford




A delegation of teachers from the Fuyuan British American School, in Shenzhen, China visited Sibford School near Banbury this week to see examples of best teaching practice.


The visit follows a trip to China earlier in the year by Sibford Head, Toby Spence.


The teachers observed lessons in a number of subjects including English, Maths, Chemistry and Physics. They also visited Sibford’s successful ESOL department where they met some of school’s overseas students.


Toby Spence said: “Our ESOL department is a key part of the school with a strong reputation for supporting pupils from across the globe as they improve their English and develop language skills which will support them in their studies. It is great to have a link to Fuyuan British American School which is a forward thinking and welcoming school in Shenzhen.  We hope to continue our partnership in years to come.”
