Education

Welcome to the Education page!

This is a space we’ve created to connect with schools and other academic and education partners. There are a number of initiatives and opportunities that we would like to share with you:

If you represent a school that would like to start working with another foreign school, please watch this space. We will be posting school partner search queries below.

We would also like to invite all schools that are already working with their counterparts from abroad to send us their success stories and case studies. If you would like to share something you are particularly proud of and have some photos to illustrate it, please update us on your events or email distinctly@birmingham.gov.uk
