ABOUT : SAI International School has several Global School Partnerships (GSP) with schools in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. This programme provides guidance, professional development opportunities and a means for developing a global dimension within the curriculum of all participating schools. Some of these partnerships are at the early stages and some are embedded. All allow for SAI teachers and students to visit their partner school for up to 5 days. In reciprocation SAI hosts teachers and students from their partner schools each year. Another element of GSP is collaborative classroom activities, projects and virtual classes. All the school listed below have signed partnership agreements with SAI International School outlining the work to be done annually.
Under the ongoing international student / teacher exchange program we are in partnership with Chosen Hill School, Gloucester UK (Class VIII-X) and Winterbourne International Academy, Bristol, UK (Class XI-XII). Our students visit the schools every year in June (Chosen Hill) and October(Winterbourne International Academy) and similarly the students from the two partner schools visit SAI in the month of October – December . Our School is also in collaboration with the Churchdown Village Infant School, Gloucester , UK in which two pre-primary teachers visit the school to plan joint curricular activities that will embed a global dimension into both schools’ curricula.
