Calling all Derby and Derbyshire schools – the Global School Alliance are looking for schools that are interested in establishing links with a school in their sister city region of Hefei, China and joining a fully-funded delegation to develop a Sister School Partnership relationship.

Derby City and Derbyshire County Councils have a long and close relationship with the province of Anhui and the city of Hefei. Both cities have strong education links and the University of Derby has formed a strategic partnership with the Jiangxi University of Technology.

As the official UK partner of the schools in Hefei, we are proud to be offering a limited number of schools in Derby and Derbyshire fully-funded places on a delegation to teachers who are interested in establishing these links and developing meaningful exchanges for students and staff.

Derby City Council have notified schools of the opportunity and you can find the notice on the Schools’ Information Portal:
