This week, Sharples School received confirmation that we have been awarded yet another grant for an Erasmus+ project. We have been awarded funding for further staff CPD, which will enable members of the Senior Leadership Team to job shadow their counterparts at a school in Finland, which is one of the world’s leading education systems. This project will allow SLT to experience this system and bring ideas, especially about vocational courses, back to Sharples which will then enhance the education of our pupils. 

This funding will last from September 2019-September 2021 and is in addition to the two Erasmus projects which we started this year. 

In total, the school has now secured 150,000€ of Erasmus funding as well as funding from Connecting Classrooms which will support a project on Gender Equality (with a school in South Africa) which will also commence in September 2019. 

Due to the expansion of our international projects and work in school, we are delighted to welcome Miss Liddy (MFL) into our international team. She will be working alongside our current International Coordinator, Miss Southern, to ensure the successful delivery of all of our international work.

We are incredibly proud of our achievements in this area so far, and will be sure to keep you updated with our projects going forward!
