International school twinning scheme gets thumbs up from MP

Local MP, Mark Lancaster, is contacting schools across Milton Keynes to take part in connecting classrooms.

Connecting classrooms is a new scheme which will twin schools from the UK to others around the world. The scheme will allow schools to collaborate on curriculum projects, interact on an online platform and will issue grants for teachers to visit partner schools.

Mark Lancaster commented; 'I am really excited about the twinning project and hope that all the local schools get involved. In a year when we will see the Olympics, it is important to keep up the momentum of international engagement.'

The project has been designed by the Department for International Development and the British Council. If a school would like to get involved or just get more information, please visit
