We have an ongoing link with Kobe University Secondary School in Japan and in the past pupils have visited each other and enjoyed participating in a range of different cultural events such as judo, calligraphy and tea ceremonies.
South Africa – Sparrow Schools
We now have an established link with Sparrow Schools in Johannesburg, which provides specialised education for disadvantaged children with learning differences. Pupils from Alleyn’s spent a day at the school while on their sports tour of South Africa and were truly inspired by the young people there. Two teachers from Sparrow Schools have also spent a day at Alleyn’s working closely with their respective subject departments. The Charity Committee continue to fundraise for this school.
We have an ongoing IT link with the Methodist Girls High School in Freetown. Alleyn’s donated iPads to the school and have provided training in their use. Regular podcasts are exchanged between the schools.
