Finland teachers visit

Team from Finland visit the Academy

On 2nd - 4th November, The de Ferrers Academy was host to a group of teachers from Ylitornion yhteiskoulun lukio School in Lapland, Finland. Like our Trent Campus, they are a 1:1 iPad school and headteacher Sari Lantto is also an Apple DIstinguished Educator, a global community of innovators that includes 2 of our own staff.

The Finnish team were part of an Erasmus+ EU funded projecty to share best practice in teaching and look at staff development, especially in Maths, Science, PE and Art. They observed lessons, compared approaches to teaching & learning and met staff and students on Dove and Trent Campuses.

It was an absolute pleasure to host Sari's team and she thanked the "lovely, engaged hardworking staff & students" at The de Ferrers Academy. We look forward to working with their staff and students on some future projects.
