Castlebrook High collaborates with Chinese school


Castlebrook High School’s blossoming partnership with their Chinese partner continues to go from strength to strength following a recent visit.

The Bury-based school, which is part of the Shaw Education Trust, welcomed visitors from their partner school, Datong High School, earlier this month.

Students from both schools were able to experience each other’s cultures and learn more about education provision in their countries.

Sue Armstrong, Principal of Castlebrook High, said: “The rich experiences will, no doubt, remain in students’ memories forever whilst the key personal interactive learning of the week will well equip them for college, university and future careers.”

Mr Liu, Headteacher of Datong High School, which is affiliated to Beijing University, visited Castlebrook with five students following Castlebrook’s visit to their school three months earlier.

The visit enabled British and Chinese students to come together in friendship to celebrate customs, traditions and approaches to learning through both formal ceremonies and joint lessons. 

Together students explored a range of disciplines, including Mathematics, Physical Education, gastronomy and the work of William Shakespeare.

Mrs Armstrong continued: “The visit made for a truly vibrant week at Castlebrook and we very much look forward to the next instalment in this international sister-school collaboration.”
